The future of state housing in Porirua features private landscaped sections, double glazing and balconies.

Housing NZ is preparing to seek building consent to build 24 one-bedroom, 20 two-bedroom, four four-bedroom and five five-bedroom houses along Castor Cres in Cannons Creek.

The land has been empty since 27 ageing and earthquake-prone units were demolished in 2007 and 2008. More were pulled down in nearby Hazard Gr and Esk Pl in 2015.


Don't be shy! Have your say....
