Neighbourhoods around the country are pushing against Kainga Ora developments. 

Forty-five-unit apartment blocks being developed in New Plymouth have neighbours worried.  

Mayor, Neil Holdom, told Heather du Plessis-Allan that people are raising legitimate concerns – but more social housing is needed.  

“We’ve got a waiting list with 770 families, that’s not 770 people that’s 770 families in Taranaki.” 

Meanwhile, a petition garnering thousands of signatures hopes to stop a development on Auckland's North Shore.
