Housing New Zealand provides safe and affordable homes for people in greatest need. As New Zealand’s largest landlord, we own or lease about 69,000 properties, housing around 200,000 people.
The needs of our applicants and tenants change constantly, which means we need to understand, plan for and deliver changes to our housing stock to match those needs. It is a big challenge, but we are committed to meeting it by investing in new, warm, dry, improved state housing, homes that are the right size for our applicants today and in the future.
We are redeveloping some areas where our houses are highly concentrated. National and international research has confirmed that mixed communities can lead to an overall improvement in life chances for all, including more vulnerable members such as our customers.
Our vision for the future is that state houses are part of healthy, sustainable, mixed communities including state, social and privately owned properties. Where possible, we incorporate affordable housing into redevelopment projects.
To achieve this we partner with businesses and Kiwi organisations as well as other government agencies and local authorities.
