Fraser made this Official Information request to Kāinga Ora–Homes and Communities

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Kāinga Ora–Homes and Communities should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Fraser

Dear Housing New Zealand Corporation,

I'd appreciate if you could provide an update as to what is planned for the vacant Housing New Zealand land located on Merton/Rimutaka/Merton Street, Upper Hutt formerly occupied by Housing New Zealand Flats.

The land has been vacant for some time now and it would be good to see this space utilised (be it by a private or public developer or both). Personally I would not however like to see high density housing in this position - it would be ideal for stand alone single households.

Could you please provide copies of any documents, emails, correspondence, meeting minutes, plans or other documents which are pertinent to the intended future use of these particular properties which date from the time of the previous building's demolition to now.

Please note I have made the same request to the minister as I was unsure if a request to her would include you in the request, so it would probably be efficient and I would be happy for you to both respond collectively.

Yours faithfully,
