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
