Marlborough housing developments

There is a significant housing shortage and urgent need for housing in the Marlborough region. There is also a shortage of land that can be developed and planning limitations.

Our early plans suggest we could deliver more than 140 new homes across the region in the next few years, focusing on the suburbs of Central Blenheim, Mayfield, Redwoodtown and Riversdale.

Community engagement

On the 2nd and 3rd October our community engagement team held two community drop-in sessions [PDF, 532 KB] in Marlborough.

The sessions were an opportunity for the community to find out more about the new developments planned for the area and ask questions like:

  • How sites are identified for new housing.
  • Our design, planning and construction processes.
  • How we place people into homes and manage our housing.
  • How we support customers to live well in their homes and community.

Our interactive map(external link) has more information about the homes we're planning for the Marlborough region. Or you can download our latest brochure, Housing opportunities for Marlborough [PDF, 4.4 MB] - September 2023.
