We're investing in Roskill South.

Work is well and truly underway on the new housing and community project in Roskill South, an area within Mt Roskill bounded by the South Western motorway (to the north), the Akarana Golf Course, Richardson Road and May Road.

The Roskill South development will replace approximately 260 Housing New Zealand houses with up to 900 new warm, dry, healthy homes. Of this number, around 300 will be new state homes. The balance will be a 50/50 mix of more affordable homes including KiwiBuild and long term rentals as well as market homes.

By using the land more efficiently than we did back in the 1950s and 60s when the original homes were built, we will be able to increase the numbers of community housing residences available and also build much-needed new homes for the Auckland housing market.

We are improving the quality, safety, and usability of the Freeland Reserve. This will transform the reserve into a community space fir for recreational activities and picnics. The first stage of physical works will begin in December 2018 through to April 2019 with the remainder completed during the summer of 2019/2020. The wetland is being developed by Auckland Council in consultation with HLC, Mana Whenua, the Local Board and the community.

What does this mean for me?

The investment in Roskill South will bring new people to the area and improve the amenities for everyone. New students and families will help the local schools grow and invigorate the community.

Older Housing New Zealand homes in Roskill South will be replaced with warm, dry, modern homes. Tenants of Housing New Zealand, who will be affected by the first stage of building, have already been contacted by Housing New Zealand’s Tenancy Liaison Team. If Housing New Zealand has not spoken to you personally, you are not impacted by the current development yet.

When Housing New Zealand tenants are impacted by redevelopment, they are fully supported through the process by the specialised HNZ Tenancy Liaison Team from the very early stages of planning. Should redevelopments require tenants to relocate, Housing New Zealand provides plenty of notice and works closely with each household to support them into an alternative home, taking into account community links and schooling.

During the construction, contractors and HLC will work with community development agencies to keep all Roskill South residents informed as we go. We'll be updating this website as the project progresses.

What is the area like?

Roskill South is one of Auckland's most ethnically diverse communities. Census data shows a higher number of people identifying as Pacific, Middle Eastern, Latin American and African than the surrounding area.

Roskill South is also a young community when compared to the surrounding area, and households have a higher number of children.

The Roskill South neighbourhood is home to May Road Primary School, Turner Reserve, Winstone Park, and Freeland Reserve. Mt Roskill Grammar school and Mt Roskill Intermediate School are within walking distance. Cameron Pool and Leisure Centre, along with various playing fields and other recreational activities, is located within the expansive grounds of Keith Hay Park. Between the school grounds, reserves, Keith Hay Park, the Akarana golf course and Puketāpapa (Mt Roskill) itself, there's a lot of room to get outdoors in Roskill South. Winstone Park on Puketāpapa is an especially beautiful place for a walk or picnic.

Why has the area been chosen?

It's important that we replace old Housing New Zealand houses with new warm, dry, healthy homes. Furthermore, Roskill South has specifically been chosen for investment because the community has excellent access to local services, schools and amenity. There are a number of parks, reserves and sports grounds in the area, including Keith Hay Park and Winstone Park on Puketāpapa (Mt Roskill). The area is only 7km from the central city and has easy access to the CBD via public transport, including a frequent bus service along Dominion Road.

More Homes. Great Neighbourhoods.

Who is running the project?

Like all good things, the Mt Roskill Development is a team effort. The key organisations involved are HLC and Housing New Zealand. We are also working with council, transport agencies, education providers and the community to get the best outcomes for Mt Roskill. 

About HLC

The development project is being led by HLC, the people responsible for the very successful development of the new community at Hobsonville Point in Auckland’s northwest. HLC is a subsidiary of Housing New Zealand, governed by its own board of directors. HLC looks after several projects around Auckland just like this one, including Northcote, Mangere and Oranga developments.

HLC is experienced at masterplanning. That means close attention is paid to urban design, including infrastructure (like roads) and amenity (such as parks). Consideration is given to how the land is used, the design of the neighbourhood, connections between parks and streets, and how people move around – such as walking and biking. With the help of input from the community and urban designers we ensure that as well as adding more homes, we develop neighbourhoods in ways that are more functional and attractive.
