KiwiBuild homes to be built with Porirua Council
The next Labour Government will work with Porirua City Council to develop a site to build over 50 homes as part of its KiwiBuild programme, Labour Leader David Cunliffe says.
“Labour’s KiwiBuild policy will build 100,000 affordable homes over ten years. We want to work closely with local government to find the right locations and free up land for development.
“Porirua City Council and its Mayor Nick Leggett have already come to the party. KiwiBuild fits nicely with the council’s City Centre Revitalisation Plan.
“When Labour leads the next Government the Council has set aside land on Heriot Drive that would accommodate 52 two-bedroom townhouses.
"Labour MP for Mana Kris Faafoi has been working closely with Nick Leggett for some time on the issue to ensure there are affordable homes for the community and to help the Porirua City Council's City Revitalisation Plan attract more economic activity to the heart of the city. Labour's Kiwibuild policy met both needs.
“It’s great to see Porirua Council and Nick Leggett can see the opportunities that KiwiBuild provides to develop quality affordable housing for Kiwis.
“I look forward to working with them in the next Labour Government,” David Cunliffe said.
