A protest group has criticised the lack of consultation by Auckland Council and the Government in setting up the Tamaki Redevelopment Company.
Press Release – Tamaki Housing Group
It is an absolute farce that suburbs Glen Innes, Pt England and Panmure have been placed under The Tamaki Redevelopment Company with no consultation whatsoever from the residents and rate payers in these areas where there is a one to one ratio of home owners/tenants.
The Tamaki Redevelopment Company is no more than a Trojan horse for a property developer fuelled land grab. It is an undesirable experiment in the form of an imported failed social housing policy from the United Kingdom.
Optimising land use equates to high rise intensified compounds (zone 8) and charity housing.
The Tamaki Housing Group wants The Heads of Agreement that was signed behind closed doors (24th July 2012) by The Mayor and Housing Minister to be rescinded immediately.
Protest Saturday 8th September 10.30am Line Road, Glen Innes.
