West Coast housing developments

There is a significant housing shortage and urgent need for housing in the West Coast region. Our early plans suggest we could deliver around 124 new homes across Westport, Greymouth and Hokitika in the next few years.

Open home event - 68 Rintoul Street, Westport. Join us in celebrating the completion of two new two-bedroom homes, by coming along to our open home on 22 November 2023 between 11am - 12pm. This 'open home' is an opportunity for the community to view these homes, which will be used for Public Housing.



Community engagement

In October and November our community engagement team held six community drop-in sessions [PDF, 535 KB] across the West Coast.

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.
