Tamaki Housing Group

20 December 2011

PRESS RELEASE: Tamaki Housing Group:

"Almost on the eve of Christmas, the manipulated underhandedness continues where it is intended for three of the shortlisted private developer companies to submit proposals to Housing NZ which would result in homes being bulldozed and the State Housing stock halved from 156 to 78.

"*The shortlisted groups are required to submit Development Proposals by 22 December 2011. They are:*
**

- *Arrow International / Hopper Developments Limited / Southside Group Consortium*
- *AV Jennings Limited / Universal Homes / Canam Construction / URBIS Joint Venture*
- *Todd Property Group Limited / Ngati Whatua Joint Proposal"*

If this proceeds, some of the most vulnerable families in the community will be devastated, including the elderly with life-threatening illnesses, others with severe disabilities, returned servicemen amd families with small children.

Why should these fine New Zealanders have this intimidatory stress forced upon them under the cloak of Christmas?

Right from the outset, Area "A" and all of Area "B" were never included in the Glen Innes Renewal Project.

This is an abuse of the democratic process.

This proposal that has been dumped on State tenants in September 2011, should not proceed, and be withdrawn immediately."
