I support affordable housing. So do many others in Tasman.
But it appears that it is “easier” to build affordable housing in Nelson, than it is in Tasman.
Why is this, you might ask?
Well, the short answer is a TDC policy (not law) has the council focused on revenue gathering, and not on supporting all of our community. Apparently the council will fall over backwards to assist a developer in order to gain more rating revenue, but not a charitable trust that is trying to help low income families get a home.
But you can do something about this.
You can vote for a councillor that will speak up for all our community.
