Reported in the Northern Advocate by award winning senior reporter Lindy Laird below, bad enough in Auckland with a housing shortage fuelled on by non resident foreign property speculators, and a far too loose migration policy, now flowing on to Whangarei is totally unacceptable.
"The housing shortage in Whangarei alone resulted in the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) stumping up $271,000 in the three months ending March 31 for people to live in temporary accommodation."
"The house - the exterior of which appears in good condition, with a private, sunny, fenced yard - has been vacant for about nine months after its internal wall cladding and utilities were ripped out, say neighbours."
"The agency was paying the motel $3175 per week for three families alone, and in the five months up until then spent more than $33,000 on two rooms occupied by a mother and her five children."
Please note: Petition link is top of this page, comments are great too.
