Residents of Millwater in North Auckland are battling to stop Kāinga Ora from building 37 new houses for the homeless, Stuff reports, fearing it will bring anti-social behaviour to their neighbourhood. Last week, graffiti in large letters appeared on a retaining wall in Milford saying it is “our hood now”. Government housing agency Kāinga Ora has said it is sympathetic to the residents’ concerns but the question remains: if not here, then where would desperately needed public housing be built?
