New, warm, dry homes for Oranga

Early planning work is underway for the Oranga Development which will bring new warm, healthy homes to neighbourhoods throughout Oranga. We will also be improving some of the streets and parks in the neighbourhoods we’re working in. Over the next eight years the development will see around 335 old Housing New Zealand state homes replaced with around 1,000 new homes. By using the land more efficiently than we did back in the 1940s and 50s when the original houses were built, we will be able to increase the number of state homes available and also build much-needed new homes for the Auckland housing market. Homes in more affordable price ranges will also be a priority within the Oranga Development.

The plan for Oranga

Why has the area been chosen?

Oranga is one of several suburbs across Auckland that has similar projects underway or planned. It has been chosen because it has good transport links and community facilities and because the state houses in the area need renewing.

Oranga residents have easy access to employment hubs Te Papapa and Penrose, and are close to Onehunga town centre and Auckland’s premier park, Maungakiekie. It is close to residential suburbs One Tree Hill, Greenlane, Ellerslie, and Royal Oak, all with established village centres.

More homes. Great neighbourhoods.

The Oranga Development is part of the Auckland Housing Programme, a government initiative to help Auckland develop as a vibrant city by delivering more quality homes more quickly. Read more.

How will the community benefit?

The Oranga Development will bring several benefits to the community. There will be a greater choice of high quality housing available. High quality homes are healthy homes. The streets, parks and public open space near the new housing will be upgraded. New homes will bring new people to the area to invest in and contribute to the community. This is good for local businesses and schools. The development will create jobs for local people and pathways to home ownership.

What happens to Housing New Zealand tenants?

We’re building more Housing New Zealand homes than we are taking away. If you are a Housing New Zealand tenant in Oranga you may need to move to different accommodation. Should redevelopments require you to relocate, Housing New Zealand will be in touch from the very early stages of planning and will work closely with you to support you into an alternative home, taking into account community links and schooling. If Housing New Zealand has not spoken to you personally, you are not impacted by current stages of development. Should you be impacted in the future your Tenant Liaison Officer will meet with you face to face at the earliest possible time. We will be updating the website as the project progresses but in the meantime, to get in touch with the team call 0800 801 601.

What will the homes be like?

There will be house types for all kinds of families. They will range from one-bedroom to five-bedroom family homes. Below are some of the homes from other projects currently underway.

Who is doing the work?

HLC is managing the development of the area and masterplanning of the new amenities, like streets and parks. HLC are owned by Housing New Zealand Corporation. The company was formed 12 years ago to oversee the development of Hobsonville Point in Auckland’s northwest. You’ll see a number of building companies in the Oranga area when the development gets underway. HLC will be working with transport agencies, education providers and the community to get the best outcomes for Oranga.
