out of Four Canoes Hotel on Rotorua's Fenton St
There are plans to move homeless people, some with high-needs drug addictions and mental health issues, from a Fenton St hotel to somewhere more appropriate, a Government department has confirmed.
There are more than 30 residents living at the Four Canoes Hotel under a Government contract as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown in 2020. There are now plans to move the entire contract elsewhere.
The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development says the move will help residents better access support services including budget advice and help to navigate government and community services. Others have "intensive" needs, but some may need short-term or no support at all.
