Wellington housing market is forcing people north

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellingtonians are flocking to places like Ōtaki and Levin to find affordable housing. Some people are even commuting from Palmerston North to Wellington.
Horowhenua District Mayor Bernie Wanden’s is using the sales pitch for Levin: “Still close to Wellington and offers a heck of a lot more.”
When the various roading projects underway are all finished it is claimed it will take 50 minutes to get from Horowhenua to Wellington.
What do you think about this latest trend?
