We take affordable housing very seriously and are proud of our record, from helping whanau realise their dream of home-ownership, through to working with Council on delivering affordable key sector rental housing and delivering Wellington’s first KiwiBuild development.
Whilst there is no requirement to deliver affordable housing in Shelly Bay Taikuru, we believe there is an opportunity - and a lot those who visited us at the showroom challenged us to investigate this also.
We are therefore committing to delivering 5% of all homes developed in Shelly Bay Taikuru as affordable. The affordable housing programme proposed will be a shared equity programme, and will target key sector workers currently living in Wellington (teachers, nurses, emergency services workers and police) seeking to buy their first home in the Eastern Bays.
In addition, from every open-market house sold in Shelly Bay the Partnership will donate $10,000 to Wellington City Mission – this will be used to help support those most in need within our community.
