Waiheke - A Complete Community: keeping it that way
A complete community covers the full spectrum of society. All ages, stages and walks of life.
When communities gentrify and housing becomes desirable, complete communities devolve into elite communities; their character dies. In order to prevent this, parallel markets must be created so that all can afford to rent or buy a home.
The purpose of this questionnaire is to identity members of our Waiheke community who want to rent or buy, but are finding themselves priced out of the market. The objective is then...
to convince the Council to enable affordable housing (mostly a matter of resource consents and keeping costs of building down)
to convince the community that this is important
to invite wealthy benefactors/philanthropists to invest in the long-term well-being of the community that they love
to put all that together so we actually build affordable housing now, not ten years down the track...
