Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

Last week we re­ported on the pub­lic meet­ing about the Cas­tor loop land, with the com­mu­nity ex­press­ing their con­cerns that the land was still empty.

It should not be news to any one that more houses are needed all over New Zealand. Wait­ing lists for so­cial hous­ing are long, peo­ple are sleep­ing in cars, maraes, or crowd­ing out their rel­a­tives’ houses.

It is a shame that the Cas­tor Loop land is empty. This week we re­veal that a de­vel­oper has ex­pressed in­ter­est in the land, P6, but he can’t guar­an­tee so­cial hous­ing.

The so­lu­tion has to be out their some­where and we need to find it fast.

Ev­ery­one in Porirua is en­ti­tled to live in a clean, dry and af­ford­able home.

Read more on this in our edi­to­rial on P15.
