What's planned on Esk
Before we can start building new homes, we need to make sure we have good, reliable infrastructure in place to support new housing and population growth in the area. Over the next 2 years, our civil and infrastructure experts Te Aranga will not only be preparing the area for new homes as well as future proofing the three-water network to last for generations to come.
As soon as this vital earthworks is complete, Kāinga Ora will start building over 100 new warmer, drier homes on our Esk site. We anticipate construction will be staggered from 2022 as portions of the site becomes avaliable for new homes to be built.
This will be a bit of a journey, but we thank you in advance for your patience during this construction period.
