Housing trust pledges 1000 affordable homes for Queenstown Lakes District by 2028
The Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust today announces a commitment to building 1000 affordable homes for local families over the next 10 years.
QLCHT celebrated 10 years in operation in 2017, and the start of 2018 marks a new era for the Trust as it focuses on tackling the burgeoning waiting list of 500 families needing housing assistance in the Queenstown Lakes District.
Since forming in 2007, the Trust has assisted 160 households into affordable, secure tenure housing throughout the district – 124 of these have been through the Shared Ownership programme, 27 into Affordable Rentals and nine into the Rent Saver programme.
