1000 new state homes in Auckland every year described as a 'stretch', but doable

The country’s builders and community housing providers say they are up to the task of fulfilling a rare moment of consensus by Labour, National and the Greens – all pledging to build 1000 state homes a year in Auckland if elected.

National deputy leader Nicola Willis, Labour leader Chris Hipkins and Green co-leader Marama Davidson made the commitment at a debate on Wednesday night.

Certified Builders Association chief executive Malcolm Fleming said the sector could cope and would welcome the work.
