The recently completed homes

Regional Director Otago Southland, Kerrie Young says the nine new homes replace three older homes on the site that were no longer fit for purpose.

“This means more people can live in an area close to a local school and nearby main transport routes and amenities,” says Ms Young.

All of the new homes come equipped with rooftop solar panels and the five single-storey homes are accessible meaning they are, or can be made to be, fit for purpose for customers with mobility issues.

“The solar panel systems are going to make a real difference to people living here, by driving down the cost of their power bills.

“It’s pleasing to see construction completed and we’re looking forward to local whānau moving in over the coming weeks,” Ms Young says.
