Proposed development on Brenton Place - off kepa Rd

Andrew from Orakei

Housing NZ (to use their correct name) are proposing to demolish 6 housing "units" (3 buildings) and replace them with a inappropriately sized 7-storey tower block totalling 49 units

This will be a trojan horse for an eventual 3 blocks totalling 140 units.

This has been non-notified - apart from the school

The school will shortly commence a fundraising drive to procure expert advice.

The whole development will be 100% HNZ tenants which is acknowledged as poor practice - a 1:1:1 mix of HNZ, 3rd rental and private ownership is considered best practice for community cohesion.

Please show your support for the school to stop this ghastly development

Latest job completed

Nick from Nick The Builder

Howdy Neighbours.
Just finished this wee job today for a lovely couple in Glendowie. A small deck off the main deck for the new clothesline with an Aluminum screen as a wind break as well as visual appeal. Also a small retaining wall to carry the flagstone pavers for access to the clothesline. The owners are going to pebble and bark around the pavers at there leisure. Im looking forward to seeing the end result. This deck was fixed off entirely with Stainless Steel screws, brackets etc, not a nail to be seen. Although the framing members are H4 treated all cuts were treated with timber preservative for added longevity. All this was overseen by site supervisor "Bob" the cat.
Hopefully he's happy with the result. 😁
