The Salvation Army is questioning the Government’s latest housing package and its impact on south Auckland, Stuff reports. The housing package was released on Tuesday, and enumerates a number of measures to address property speculation. Manukau Urban Māori Authority (MUMA) chairman Bernie O’Donnell and Policy Analyst Ronji Tanielu recognize the announcement of the housing package as an “important step forward”. However, they believe the government needs to find a solution for the package to gain traction in south Auckland where a lot of people can’t afford to buy a house.
