Waitakere Mayor Bob Harvey today welcomed the government’s planned $1.25 million upgrade of Housing New Zealand’s Rata Village complex.
The upgrade was announced at the New Lynn village by Housing Minister Maryan Street who said the upgrade would mean healthy and dry houses.
“I am very pleased the government has decided to take action at Rata Village,” says Mayor Harvey.
“It shows a strong commitment to healthy homes for state housing tenants, the development of New Lynn as a major town centre and Waitakere in general.”
Mayor Harvey also said that while the upgrade had been a long time coming, the minister was to be applauded for her quick action following a visit to the site just two months ago.
