We often hear about the housing crisis in Auckland, people being forced to live in cars, or put in motels while awaiting affordable accommodation. But other parts of the country are also suffering, in particular parts of Central Otago.

Social agencies in Cromwelll, which is 50 kilometres from Queenstown, say the town is suffering a rental crisis, with some families being forced to live in caravans and garages.
