Paerata Rise takes shape
Work is ongoing at Paerata Rise, with the community starting to take shape.

The work for the infrastructure has taken a total of 18,646 hours and has resulted in the installation of three kilometers of water pipes and seven kilometres of main pipes.
Close to 18000 m3 of earth has been moved for civil works, 116,000m3 of earth moved to make way for homes and nearly 4500 tonnes of metal has been laid ahead of sealing.
Up to 4500 new homes will be built at Paerata Rise, which will also have schools, retail area, transport hub and parks.
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.
