TE URUROA FLAVELL WAIARIKI MAORI PARTY MP
We’ve got to get on top of homelessness and housing problems in the electorate. There’s a lot of good things happening in Waiariki, but people sleeping on the street or in cars is unacceptable and we need more options for those looking for a place to call home.
I welcome the recent housing accord between the Government and the Rotorua Lakes Council which aims to build 900 new homes over the coming four years and consent more than 1000 sections. This, in addition with the almost 120 new social and transitional houses due in the next three years, will lift supply and ease the pressure on the housing and rental market.
