of possible Kāinga Ora redevelopment
Residents of a Kāinga Ora housing complex in Auckland are “heartbroken” their days could be numbered in the area.
Although a decision has not been made over whether the area will be redeveloped, some residents are concerned about accessibility and if a redevelopment would cater to their mobility needs.
Allyson Hamblett has lived in her Kāinga Ora home for 23 years; she has cerebral palsy and uses a walking frame.
Around 18 years ago, Kāinga Ora renovated her bathroom with a wet area shower and put in handrails both in the bathroom and to the entrances of the home.
