The construction of new houses under the KiwiBuild programme has officially begun.
Phil Twyford, the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, announced that construction of 18 homes in Papakura had started.
Further homes will be built on the same site.
“I am incredibly proud,” Twyford said. “We are delivering on our promise of affordable starter homes for families.”
The houses are to be affordable for first home buyers, as the cost of the average home in Auckland is now $1 million.
New homes at the McLennan Development site are expected to cost $579,000 for three bedrooms and $649,000 for a four-bedroom.
A ballot system will be open to first home buyers and the build is expected to be completed in August.
Twyford has pledged to deliver 100,000 affordable homes over the next decade, with 1000 of them due to be built in the next year.

  1. Houses have been built majorly all of the country e.g Huapai, queenstown, wanaka, Why is this segment of the country so amazing to be in the news, in the past three years Huapai has generated over 3-4000 houses!! And has never been in the news for it not twice not once but NEVER so put interesting things out or if you’re gonna put this out, put out the same thing but in a different place! 😀 Thank you

  2. But there is very little possibility cause it takes around 3 months to make a house and if you are making heaps it would make a decade ??!!!
