KiwiBuild ‘Reset’ – public response #4


From Sunday Star Times 08092019 – Letters to the Editor

KiwiBuild retreat

After seven months of deliberation, a fast-talking Housing Minister Megan Woods, tells us that she will welcome public scrutiny of the KiwiBuild “reset”. This of course will be a challenge given there are now no targets, not even of the aspirational variety, or other details against which to assess progress. Meanwhile, the minister asks us to be patient – political-speak for acknowledging the screw-up and attempting to dial down our expectations. Seems that this year of delivery is hitting some big road bumps, although the KiwiBuild “retreat” is the most spectacular admission so far.
