Half million spent renovating empty CYF house in Nelson but tenants to come

  • After eight years sitting empty and more than $500,000 in renovations a Child Youth and Family (CYF) home in Nelson will finally be tenanted.

The eight-bedroom house at 71 Green St in Tahunanui was leased by the Ministry of Social Development to the Nelson Tasman Housing Trust last week to use for social housing purposes.

With the exception of a few months in 2009 and 2010 when it was used by an Open Home Foundation foster family, the house has been unoccupied since 2007.
