Empty Housing New Zealand dwellings in Epuni East

Tim Makarios made this Official Information request to Housing New Zealand Corporation

The request was partially successful.

From: Tim Makarios

Dear Housing New Zealand Corporation,

Thank you for the information you provided in response to my request titled "Empty Housing New Zealand dwellings" dated February 27, 2019.

I was disappointed that you refused to supply the addresses of empty Housing New Zealand dwellings on privacy grounds. This seems particularly strange given that Housing New Zealand appears to have provided to national media very specific information about the locations of future state houses in Epuni East: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politic...

Because of your refusal to fully answer that question, I have a follow-up request. For each of the seven Housing New Zealand dwellings in Epuni East that were empty on 27 February 2019, please provide the following information:
1) Which of these categories the dwelling was categorized as on 27 February 2019: "ready to let", "under repair", "pending decision", "pending redevelopment", "renewal & maintenance", or "SLED", as in this document: https://hnzc.co.nz/assets/Publications/R...
2) Whether the dwelling has had any tenants since Housing New Zealand acquired or built the dwelling.
3) If the dwelling has not had any tenants since Housing New Zealand acquired or built it, please provide the date on which Housing New Zealand acquired or finished building the dwelling.
4) If the dwelling has had one or more tenants since Housing New Zealand acquired or built it, please provide the date on which the dwelling last had a tenant before 27 February 2019.
5) If the dwelling was categorized as "SLED" on 27 February 2019 (or if it is for any other reason possible to release this information, such as a subsequent categorization as "SLED"), please provide the address of the dwelling; otherwise identify the dwelling by a unique letter, such as "A", "B", "C", etc. when providing the other information about it.

Sincerely,

Tim Makarios
