The Community of Refuge Trust (CORT) recently opened its new community housing development at 227 Mount Wellington Highway in Auckland.

Amongst the speakers at the official opening on 29 January 2015 were Prime Minister John Key and Social Housing Minister Paula Bennett.

The 19 unit development, which was funded through a $3.2 million contribution from the Government’s Social Housing Fund, provides much needed social housing on the Auckland Isthmus.

CKL was the lead consultant in obtaining the required resource consents and engineering approvals for the development, and supervised civil construction works. As part of the notified resource consent process, CKL planners provided expert evidence at the hearing led by Independent Commissioners, and thereby played a pivotal role in the success of the project.
