“…a daily summary developed by STUFF”??? You do surprise me Doogie.
Stuff can’t even get their own stuff right. That article is dated 2 July 2018
Stuff’s tracker states “Labour promised 100,000 new homes in 10 years. Its first deadline is 1000 built by July 1, 2019.” which is roughly a whole year after this article. Yet their brilliant tracker says just 9 days until first deadline.
Then we see the clever tracker people explain how their tracker works.
”Homes target to keep on track is where we measure the Government against its self-set goal. This target changes every day to reflect how many houses the Government should theoretically have built to keep on track for 1000 in a year. To get to that target the Government needs to build roughly 2.74 homes a day – so every day we add that number of houses then round to the nearest whole number.”
The whole thing is a joke Doogie. Stuff staff change the numbers every day to reflect a theoretical govt number? Quite clearly Stuff don’t do any investigative work with people on Kiwibuild, which isn’t at all surprising going on past Stuff stuff ups .#1724906Hero42 July 12, 2019 at 1:10 pm
Seems we agree on something.
Sounds like Stuff got sucked into the National attack ad of thinking that Kiwibuild would be a linear progression which of course we know it isn’t as it will ramp up over time.

Good to see we agree that rentals do nothing for the housing supply and make the existing houses more unaffordable as I originally stated.
Nothing like a bit of detailed discussion to get consensus.

Not sure where you are getting your information from but it is wrong.
According to the NZ Herald the Prime Minister and family flew Air New Zealand to the Cook Islands for their holiday.
Just thought you and everyone else should know the truth.

You are mistaking. Rental housing has and always will play a vital part in housing. As much as this goes against your socialist agenda this fact will remain the truth. You must find it terribly galling that this socialist government is falling short on expectation.

And speaking of getting sucked into, for ‘ramping up’ to be an accurate description, an assembly line must already be churning out finished products. In the case of Kiwibuild, not one affordable house has been produced in over 18 months.
Still, now we have the master windfarms builder at the helm, I’m expecting big things happening any day soon.

Doogie, quite extraordinary, if rentals do nothing for the housing supply, then someone needs to tell Housing NZ to stop building three a day.#1725020doogieMemberMember since: March 27, 2006

One should not forget that it was Labour and Peter Dunne who opposed National’s attempt to modify the <span class=”st”><span style=”color: #6a6a6a;”>Resource </span></span>management act to remove bottle necks in the consent process. Perhaps they are living to regret that now.
