To help meet the high demand for housing in Rotorua, around 60 new homes are proposed for a 4.6 hectare subdivision at 85 Collie Drive, Pukehangi.
We are also redeveloping three existing Kāinga Ora sites on the corner of Quartz Avenue and Homedale Street, with five new homes planned for this whenua.
These modern, warm and dry houses will help provide Rotorua whānau in need of housing with a place to call home.
- Around 60 homes for the build ready subdivision, to be delivered in two stages
- Stage 1:
- 37 single storey, mixed two, three and four bedroom homes
- 14 of these meet universal design standards
- All homes would be fully insulated, with double glazing, carpets and curtains and be built to 6 Homestar and Healthy Homes standards
- Each home would have a deck and an easy to maintain and fenced private section with garden area
- To speed up the delivery of these homes, they will be manufactured off site
- Shared green space and landscaping
- Internal loop road and allocated off-street parking for each home
- An area of the land near the subdivision entrance is stormwater reserve, and will remain as an open and maintained grass area.
- We are exploring options for the approx. 25 homes for the second stage of the development.
- Thanks to everyone who came along to our drop-in session on 2 December at Aorangi School Hall, shared their views, asked questions and met the team. Feedback from this session and received directly will be considered ahead of applying to Rotorua Lakes Council for resource consent in early December.
- Subject to consents, work is expected to start on site in mid-2022, with completion of the first 37 homes by the end of 2022.
Housing Opportunities being reviewed
To help meet the urgent need for more warm, dry and modern homes for whānau and tamariki, Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities is investigating housing development options for current and new sites to help meet the growing demand for housing in the Bay of Plenty.
We are in the very early stages of exploring how these sites could best be developed and it’s important to note there are no confirmed plans or designs.
