Mystery development

Mystery surrounds the development of 11.52ha of land to the north of Cambridge with suggestions it is being eyed up as a site for high density and affordable housing.

The land was bought from Waka Kotahi two years ago by the Ministry of Housing and Urban development, which confirmed it would be used for the Land for Housing Programme.

The programme would build a minimum of 180 houses with at least 40 per cent of them to be public and/or KiwiBuild homes.
