Local build partners visit Paerata Rise

After the new name of Paerata Rise development was announced earlier in the month, the 12 building partners and members of Grafton Down Limited, met on site to discuss the future plans of the new town.
MP for Hunua Andrew Bayly was invited to speak to the group at Wesley College, and share the government developments including what had been budgeted for the South area. “Paerata Rise is a huge project for the local area,” Andrew said. “It is the single largest housing area in New Zealand. “It’s not about building houses, it’s about creating communities.”
Mr Bayly said the area is being heavily invested into and future residents of Paerata Rise would be connected to public transport via a new train station on the Southern Line as well as alternative road routes.
An expected 4500 homes will be built in the area which will have a new school, community hall and business hub. The first stage will see 100 homes built, with the capacity for a further 200-250 homes the following year.
The Paerata Rise development has been 13 years in the making, and with stage one earthworks completed, builders will have access to roads mid-December with first residents expected mid-2018. Building partners for the new community include G.J. Gardner, Signature Homes, Jennian Homes and Jalcon, as well as Navigation Homes, Palladium Homes, D W Homes, Precision Homes, Mark Price Builders, Capital Homes, Nick Bosanac Builders and Emandee Homes.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
