after neighbours complain
Kāinga Ora has “suspended” plans to build 37 houses for people without a home in Auckland’s Millwater following an outcry from neighbours concerned for their property values.
The government agency said it was taking the time to get feedback from the public to hear its “aspirations” for the neighbourhood.
Kāinga Ora confirmed that it had met with representatives of a group of neighbours opposed to the project last week.
Regional director Taina Jones said she acknowledged many Millwater residents had felt “taken by surprise” over plans for the site.
