“The housing crisis is really concerning. This is no longer something that is happening elsewhere,” says the Labour Party candidate for the Otaki seat, Rob McCann
It is occurring right here in Kapiti and Horowhenua, says Mr McCann, and that’s why Labour has called a public meeting on the issue with himself and the Party’s Housing Spokesperson Phil Twyford:
~ Thursday 15th June, 7pm at Waikanae Baptist Church, 286 Te Moana Road, Waikanae
You probably think, as do we, that he’s getting his wish for lots more houses in Waikanae with the Maypole company and Waikanae North developments. As observed in a previous post, the council wants lots more Ratepayers, too.
We think Mr McCann’s leader has already stated the best answer to the problem: reduce substantially the number of immigrants. And if they want to really tackle the problem of foreign investors driving prices up there are direct ways to severely restrict that, too.
But if you want to question these policies, the easiest way is to show up at the meeting.
