New homes for el­derly

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

About 40 new rental homes for Hawke’s Bay’s el­derly are due to come on­line within the next two years, with plans for new de­vel­op­ments in both Hast­ings and Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay.

Hast­ings District Ma­sonic Trust said it would start work on the new de­vel­op­ments at one site in Waipawa and a sec­ond de­vel­op­ment at the for­mer Vi­dals win­ery restau­rant in Hast­ings.

Chair­man John Gadsby said the trust had now set­tled the pur­chase of the Vi­dals site.

“It is an­tic­i­pated that be­tween 24 and 28 units will be built on the Vi­dals site.”

That site will need to be cleared prior to the units be­ing built.

“This process will take some time. It is not ex­pected that build­ing of units will start un­til mid 2019. The units will be avail­able for pur­chase un­der Oc­cu­pa­tion Rights Agree­ments once com­pleted.”

Gadsby added the trust had also pur­chased a prop­erty in Guy St, Waipawa, where 12 rental units would be built. Com­ple­tion is ex­pected by early 2020.

“There has been ev­i­dence of de­mand for units in Waipawa.

“The two projects, once com­pleted, will add to the ac­com­mo­da­tion units owned by the trust at Lums­den Court, Wind­sor Vil­las, Wil­low­park, Gor­don Road, May­fair, Have­lock North and Waipawa.
