Hi neighbours - Ex-state rentals from Auckland are being bussed in to provide much-needed housing in Northland.
The "Whare Ora" housing scheme, run by trust Chief Executive Ricky Houghton, makes use of "recycled" homes, aiming to get whānau off the street. The waiting list for state housing has tripled since 2014, and 150 families and individuals are on the waiting list.
What are your thoughts? Is it time to declare a housing state of emergency in the Far North?
