Community engagement

There is a significant housing shortage and urgent need for housing in the Marlborough region. There is also a shortage of land that can be developed and planning limitations.

Our early plans suggest we could deliver more than 140 new homes across the region in the next few years, focusing on the suburbs of Central Blenheim, Mayfield, Redwoodtown and Riversdale.

Upcoming drop-in sessions

We are holding two community drop-in sessions [PDF, 532 KB] in Blenheim where you can find out more about the new developments planned, and what this means for you. We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas around how we can better support your community.

The times for these sessions are below:

  • Monday 2 October 2023 – 2.30pm – 5.30pm - Marlborough District Libraries, 15 High Street, Blenheim
  • Tuesday 3 October 2023 - 10.00am – 12.30pm - Marlborough District Libraries, 15 High Street, Blenheim

We will have staff available to talk about:

  • How sites are identified for new housing.
  • Our design, planning and construction processes.
  • How we place people into homes and manage our housing.
  • How we support customers to live well in their homes and community.
