Political Panel 1/12: KiwiBuild progress, Kauri dieback


Judith Collins and Housing Minister Phil Twyford join The AM Show to discuss the new Government’s progress on KiwiBuild homes and the threat facing the Waitakere Ranges.

Mr Twyford says the new Government is working on “bumping up the KiwiBuild numbers.”

“We are going to get cracking in the New Year,” he says. “The bulldozers will get rumbling.”

Labour's KiwiBuild programme aims to build 100,000 high quality, affordable homes over 10 years, with 50% of them in Auckland.

The first homes are expected to be built all around Auckland.
