Glen Innes community draw attention to the housing crisis

  • Tāmaki Makaurau

He hōpuni kei te whakatūtū haere i te taha o ngā whare kautahanga i Ukutoia, i te rāwhiti o Tāmaki Makaurau hei hihī ake i ngā raru noho whare. Ahatia te ua, e matapae ana ngā kaiwhakahaere kei waenga i te rima tekau ki te kotahi rau ngā tāngata ka tae mai ki te taunaki i te noho porotēhi nei.

E ai ki a Yvonne Dainty, e maha rawa ana ngā whare kaporeihana i Tāmaki Makaurau e noho waatea ana, engari, e tokomaha tonu ana te hunga e noho kainga kore ana.

"It's a human right to homes, and they should not be homeless, they should not be staying in motels, this is we're in a crisis. The government must understand they are now in breech."

I raro i a Tāmaki Regeneration, kotahi rau mā iwa ngā whare e wātea ana i Tāmaki.  E whā tekau mā tahi o ngā mea ka whakahoua, toru tekau mā rima ka whakatikaina, e rua tekau mā rima kua pūwhāwhā, ka mutu, e waru noaiho ngā kainga ka tukuna ki ngā whānau.

Hei tā Ioela Routi he kainoho ki Ruapotaka, “I want them to take the boards off all houses that they've boarded up and house the people.”

E ai ki te Minita Take Whare a Bill English, “The government agencies are working to make sure every home that can be available is available in Auckland.  There's no reason at all why we would be holding back on houses that could be occupied by families who need them.”

Nō te marama o Paengawhāwhā i tēnei tau i tuku ai te mana me te whakahaere o ngā whare koporeihana ki te kamupene o Tāmaki Regeneration.  Heoi, ehara i te mea he rātonga whare ohotata rātou, engari kē, ka tautoko rātou i ngā rōpū e manaaki ana i te hunga kainga kore.

E ai ki a Dainty, “We're in the land of the living. These are children that are directly affected. These are whānau. This is a generation that is currently affected by homeless.”

Hei tā Dainty ka tuku tono anō ki te Rōia Matua ki whakatū pakirehua kia āta tirotiro te take, ā, ka kawea ki te Rūnanga Whakakotahi i ngā iwi o te Ao, ki te kore ō rātou tohe e whakaea.
