Auckland Council vote on future-proofing flood damaged homes

From Morning Report, 7:50 am on 23 November 2023

Auckland Council will meet on Thursday to vote on the way forward for flood and slip-damaged homes that can be salvaged if work is done to future-proof them from natural hazards.

A report to council estimates 120 homes are likely to be eligible for the scheme, costing $20 to $30 million all up.

These are Category 2P homes, which need upgrades like retaining walls.

Felix Walton has more.
