Kāinga Ora has signed an agreement with TGC to purchase seven brand new two-bedroom homes at Galloway Street, Mornington once they are completed.

Regional Director Otago, Southland and South Canterbury, Kerrie Young says the new homes will be used to meet the need for public housing in Dunedin and will provide more people with a warm and dry place to live.

“Dunedin continues to be a priority area for us based on current demand. A large proportion of our homes in the city are among the oldest in the country, so it’s important we continue to renew our portfolio and purchasing new homes from developers is one of the ways we can do this.

“We are particularly focussed on providing new homes in areas of the city that are well connected to amenities, open green spaces and services. The Galloway Street development delivers this for us,” Ms Young says.

The new homes are well suited to modern lifestyles and each one comes with its own off-street parking. Construction of the homes has begun and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

“We’re delighted to have partnered with TGC on this high-quality development and are looking forward to whānau moving in to the new homes later in the year,” says Ms Young.

Dunedin residents can now access a new interactive map(external link), which is a handy tool showing people the latest details for all our developments in their neighbourhood.
