Housing Minister Megan Woods this morning announced $136 million investment in sewerage, storm water and water storage infrastructure for Eastern Porirua to address New Zealand’s growing housing crisis.

The investment, which comes from the Government’s $3.8 billion Housing Acceleration Fund, is expected to result in capacity for 2000 additional houses and create up to 250 jobs, Woods said in a statement.

She called today’s announcement “a key milestone in the Government’s plan to address the housing crisis”.
