A Papakura woman could face eviction after filling her state house with people she says would otherwise be homeless. Pauline Goodwin lives in a twobedroom house in Papakura and has breached Housing New Zealand rules by allowing nine others to stay there. The extra people are family and friends of Goodwin, and some of them are children. ’’I’m not going to have children living out on the street - that’s not fair,’’ she told TVNZ. ’’They need a place to call home. They need stability.’’ Footage from TVNZ shows Goodwin’s house packed with mattresses, with a pre-school age boy playing on a tricycle in the driveway. Goodwin has been sleeping in the carport to accommodate her guests. Housing New Zealand’s chief operating officer Paul Commons said the agency was informed of Goodwin’s situation on March 31. He said it was ‘‘not safe or healthy or appropriate’’ for the extra people to be living with her. ’’Her tenancy has also been the subject of numerous issues for ongoing intimidating and offensive behaviour and breaches of the peace,’’ he said. ’’There have also been noise complaints, two dogs for which permission was not sought, and now overcrowding. Ms. Goodwin has been advised she is in breach of her tenancy agreement and needs to urgently address these issues.’’ Goodwin’s tenancy agreement allows only one extra person to live in the house with her. Regional commissioner for the Ministry of Social Development Eru Lyndon described the situation as ‘‘complex’’. He said that Goodwin had been receiving income from members of the household, who needed to discuss their individual circumstances with Work and Income. ’’In terms of future support we would need to fully understand the current circumstances of all members,’’ he said.
