HNZ’S ROLE

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City coun­cil­lor Ken Dou­glas has asked the coun­cil’s chief ex­ec­u­tive for a re­port on the ef­fects of Hous­ing New Zealand’s so­cial pol­icy and its will­ing­ness to trans­fer tenants. He claims the city is be­ing turned into a ‘‘tran­sit camp’’. Mr Dou­glas lev­elled the ac­cu­sa­tions at a com­mit­tee meet­ing last week, say­ing HNZ poli­cies or at­ti­tudes to­wards state hous­ing will have huge eco­nomic con­se­quences for Porirua. ‘‘Any re­port we get is likely to be sig­nif­i­cantly neg­a­tive and could aid in sub­mis­sions we make to cen­tral gov­ern­ment.’’
