The Ta­maki Re­gen­er­a­tion Com­pany, jointly owned by the Gov­ern­ment and Auck­land Coun­cil, is spear head­ing a new hous­ing de­vel­op­ment in Auck­land’s eastern sub­urbs.

It will re­place 2800 state houses with 7500 new homes over a 15 year time frame.

While 2500 of the new homes will re­main as state houses, the rest will be sold as pri­vate prop­er­ties.

Early stages of the de­velop- ment have been fo­cussed in the Glen Innes area but the project is ex­pected to ex­tend into the Point Eng­land and Pan­mure ar­eas.

Is­sues raised in­clude pop­u­la­tion in­crease, im­pact on ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties, risk of rise in land value and lack of off-street park­ing to ac­com­mo­date the growth.
