Accessible Properties is delighted that Hon Amy Adams, Minister for Social Housing and Minister Responsible for Housing New Zealand Corporation, is today opening its new Tauranga office.
Accessible Properties is one of New Zealand’s largest non-government housing providers with a long history of providing good quality housing that prioritises people with disabilities, older people and those on low incomes.
The Tauranga office has been opened in preparation for the transfer of more than 1100 homes from Housing New Zealand to Accessible Properties on 1 April 2017.
“The office is centrally located and easily accessed through public transport amenities. From here Accessible Properties will manage the new properties and bring to our new tenants the same high standard of service our current tenants enjoy,” says Accessible Properties Chief Executive, Greg Orchard.
“We have been providing housing for more than 60 years and in Tauranga for more than 50,” says Accessible Properties General Manager Tauranga, Andrew Wilson.
“We have led the way in achieving community integration with social housing and from the new office our tenancy managers will act as community connectors for tenants who would like to access more social or community support services or iwi links.
“We know what a difference good housing makes and with the properties we already own we are proud to be able to make a difference.”
“We look forward to bringing our years’ of experience to Tauranga, providing the stable housing base from which tenants can participate and contribute positively in their local community,” says Greg.
Accessible Properties is a New Zealand-based registered charity. It already manages more than 1600 properties and from 1 April this number will increase to more than 2700.
