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 state houses with up to 920 new warm, dry, healthy homes. Of this number, around 310 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.

The Information Centre for this development is situated at 142 May Road, Mt Roskill. Wednesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm, or contact 09 953 8206 to speak with one of our friendly Information Centre team members.

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 state homes in Roskill South will be replaced with warm, dry, modern homes. State housing tenants who will be affected by the first stage of building, have already been contacted by the Tenancy Liaison Team. If the team has not spoken to you personally, you are not impacted by the current development yet.

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

During the construction, we 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 state 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.

  • The Development Details
    banner2

    What is the timeframe for the development?

    Roskill South Development will take around five years to complete. We’re underway with Stage 1a house construction and homes are expected to be completed mid – late 2019. Civil works and tenant moves are also underway for Stage 2, we expect house completion around mid - late 2020. Planning for Stage 3 is due to commence shortly.

    What days / hours will work be taking place?

    The construction work is undertaken Monday – Saturday (excluding Public Holidays). From Monday to Friday, the resource consent permits work from 7.30 am until 6.00 pm. On Saturdays, working hours are limited to 8.00 am until 6.00 pm.

    What is being built?

    The new state, market and affordable homes will be designed and built to modern standards and will include double glazing, insulation and modern materials and fittings inside and out. There will be dedicated off-street parking spaces. All plans go through an urban design review process to ensure they meet a high standard of design quality. There will be a mixture of standalone homes, duplex homes and apartments. Click on the map to see exactly what’s going where.

  • Buying and selling homes

    Can I buy a house in Roskill South?

    New houses are coming to the area soon. We are working towards having the first lot of more affordable and market homes available to purchase off the plans mid - late 2019. If you are interested in being kept up-to-date on the development and to hear when houses become available for sale, sign up on here on the website.

    If you’d like to find out more about KiwiBuild homes, including the criteria and the process for buying a KiwiBuild home, you can register on the KiwiBuild website here: https://www.hud.govt.nz/residential-housing/housing-affordability/kiwibuild/buying-a- kiwibuild-home/.

    Can I sell my house to you?

    Please get in touch with us at info@mtroskillsouthdevelopment.co.nz.

    How can I buy old state houses that have been removed?

    We can put you in contact with a house removal company. Email us at info@mtroskillsouthdevelopment.co.nz and we’ll get back to you.

  • What are you doing about recycling?
    Floorboards2

    Before we are able to develop each stage we need to remove the old houses. Where a house is unable to be relocated we work hard to recycle leftover materials to be repurposed. Some materials are unable to be recycled due to a range of things, including asbestos or where the materials are in a state of disrepair. If materials cannot be re-used they are taken to Green Gorilla’s recycling facility where around 85% of it is recycled for other uses. We are always working on finding ongoing sustainable solutions and continuing to divert from landfill where we can.

  • What are you doing about the existing trees?
    424A1836

    We are working alongside Auckland Council and a dedicated arborist to ensure that when trees are removed more are replanted. The replanting of native New Zealand trees is prioritised.

    We are pleased to report that we’ve put measures into place to preserve two Puriri trees which were planted by a state housing tenant many years ago.

  • Should I request a Building Condition Survey?
    IMG 1498

    If your property is in close proximity to the development sites we would like to offer you the opportunity of a Building Condition Survey at our cost. This report will clearly record the condition of your property before the works commence. In the event that your building is damaged during the works, this report then makes it easy for all parties to see the extent and then take action to fix it. If you would like to go ahead with the Building Condition Survey or have any queries, please do not hesitate to email us and we will get in touch - info@mtroskillsouthdevelopment.co.nz.

  • What happens to Tenants of existing homes?

Who is doing the work?

As of 1 October, Housing New Zealand, HLC and KiwiBuild have come together to form Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities. It brings a more cohesive, joined-up approach to supporting the Government’s priorities for housing and urban development in New Zealand, by contributing to thriving communities that provide people with good quality, affordable housing choices and offer good access to jobs, amenities and services. Kāinga Ora has two key roles: being a world-class public housing landlord and working in partnership to enable, facilitate and build urban development projects of all sizes.

We look after several projects around Auckland just like this one including Hobsonville Point, Northcote, Mangere and Oranga developments and will be working with transport agencies, education providers and the community to get the best outcomes for Mt Roskill.
