Wellington City Council moving social housing to charity

From Morning Report, 6:20 am on 4 August 2022

Wellington City Council is poised to move its entire social housing portfolio into a new community housing charity. 

It is also planning to use millions of dollars in three-waters sweetener funding from the government to subsidise the rents of its low-income tenants.

It is making the changes because it has failed to convince the government to extend its rental subsidy to the council's tenants.

Reporter Kirsty Frame has the story.
