Construction gets underway on new village for older people in Henderson

Auckland Mayor Phil Goff today marked the start of construction of 40 new homes as part of a new housing development for older people in Henderson.

The 40-apartment development at 33 Henderson Valley Road will increase the number of homes for older people in Auckland to 1452 and the number of villages to 63. It will be managed by community housing provider Haumaru Housing, a partnership between Auckland Council and The Selwyn Foundation.

Mayor Goff says, “Forty new homes in Henderson will be a welcome addition to 1412 homes that council already provides older people who need affordable and secure accommodation in Auckland.

“Housing delivered through our partnership with The Selwyn Foundation not only provides warm and dry homes to older people but creates safe and supportive communities.

“The number of older Aucklanders is expected to double in the next 15 years. Through Haumaru Housing, we can help play a part in providing housing of a high standard in our city to help cater for our ageing population,” said Mayor Goff.
