Community engagement and resources

To help meet the strong demand for public housing, we are redeveloping our land at 14-30 Ross Crescent, Fairfield, Hamilton.

We are making better use of our land by building 16 new, warm and healthy two and three-storey homes and apartments. These will replace three existing older homes on large sections which are next to each other.

Combining the three sites provides an opportunity to build a greater number of much needed homes and apartments, which will be similar in height to some others in the area.

What’s planned

  • Replacing three existing 1950s homes on three large adjoining sections, with 16 new warm, dry and modern two-storey homes and a three-storey apartment building:
    • 6 two-bedroom apartments
    • 10 two-storey homes ranging in size from 2-4 bedrooms
    • 3 of these homes will be accessible
  • The homes and apartments will be similar in height to properties in the area
  • Gardens, shared landscaped green spaces and children’s play area
  • Planting of specimen trees and native plants
  • All homes will be low maintenance, fully insulated and with double glazing, carpets and curtains
  • Internal road and 26 off-street parks for the 16 homes
  • The homes will be for a range of people, including small and larger families

Next steps

  • Resource consent was received from Hamilton City Council in January 2022. Detailed design is underway and on site work is expected to start in mid-2022, with completion in late 2023.
