Naenae welcomes housing turn-around

Approximately a year ago, the Parish of Naenae-Epuni staged a protest camp-in on empty Housing New Zealand land in their parish, demanding action from the Government to provide adequate social housing in the area when so many people were struggling to find accommodation.  At the time, Rev Martin Robinson, Priest in Charge of the parish, was told that there were no plans for development on the site on Seddon Street, but now a letter has been released to say that construction is about to begin.  “What a wonderful transformation!” Martin has told us, and the parish is now looking forward to playing its part in forging relationships with those who move into the community.
