Progress on the building of 68 modern, quality, affordable new homes in New Plymouth took another step with the blessing of the Marfell site on 21 March.

The blessing paved the way for Housing New Zealand to begin construction on these KiwiBuild homes which is a major piece in rejuvenating the housing stock in the Marfell suburb.

The three and four bedroom homes will also provide first home buyers with an opportunity to get on the property ladder.

The first of the homes are expected to be completed  from mid-2019 onwards.
