Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The man­age­ment of the Moana Court flats has of­fi­cially been placed in the hands of Welling­ton City Coun­cil. Porirua City Coun­cil de­cided to adopt WCC’s so­cial hous­ing ser­vice pol­icy last week, ef­fec­tively turn­ing over the 26 units to the other coun­cil. Rents will be set at 70 per cent of mar­ket rate, or 35 per cent of res­i­dents’ in­comes, which­ever is lower, and this will be re­viewed an­nu­ally. PCC will be li­able for main­te­nance – $350,000 has been set aside for the next 10 years – and a ten­ancy man­age­ment fee of $20,000. Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett said the coun­cil’s de­sire to see Moana Court kept as so­cial hous­ing has been achieved, WCC had the right ex­per­tise to man­age the units and there had been pos­i­tive buy-in from the ten­ants.
