Community engagement

2020
July - The first 10 homes, 2 five-bedroom and 8 two-bedroom, have been completed and ready for tenants to move in.

A blessing was held for the 10 new homes on Castor Crescent with Ngati Toa, Porirua City Council, Kāinga Ora and the eastern Porirua community. 

An open home and BBQ at Castor Crescent was a chance for the neighbours and the community to come and have a look around the new homes.
