Brand new properties, well kept gardens and children safely playing in the street under a blue sky is an idyllic image which would attract any new home buyer.

It’s also the picture Housing Minister Phil Twyford revealed last month in the concept drawings, which accompanied his announcement that 68 new houses will be built in New Plymouth as part of  the KiwiBuild scheme.

The news represents a $23 million funding injection to help people get a foot onto the property ladder in the city.
