40 new apartments being built in Henderson take Auckland Council’s tally of Housing for Older People rental units to 1,452, covered by a network of 63 villages.
Our plan for regenerating this network involves redeveloping or selling sites that we identify as unfit for our requirements of modern and healthy homes. We’ll reinvest money from sales into developing other fit-for-purpose sites, as well as growing our stock of housing for older people.
Most of the current units are in South Auckland, followed by the north and the west. There are none in central Auckland due to Housing New Zealand stock there. Of the local board areas, Devonport-Takapuna has the largest concentration of units.
