Horowhenua Monthly Record for Building Consents

September 12, 2018

Residential consents in Horowhenua were up 9.8 percent, with 246 new homes collectively valued at $78.2 million consented in the year - including a monthly record of 46 consented homes in May this year.


That was the finding of the Horowhenua Quarterly Economic Update for September 2018


Horowhenua District Council Economic Development Manager Shanon Grainger says more people are moving to the district, including 188 international migrants in the past two years.


He says the number of builds is keeping up with the estimated minimum of 244 new homes that will be needed every year, for the next 20 years.


However, there is a clear lack of new family homes and subdivisions to accommodate them, and this needs to change if we’re to strengthen the overall fabric of our community, our schools and our support networks across the District, says Mr Grainger.
