Pomare: Tenants go to Court of Appeal
The story goes on.
The three women fighting their eviction from their Housing New Zealand homes in Lower Hutt’s Farmer Cres are seeking leave to appeal to the Court of Appeal. The outcome from this ongoing saga was they were told to quit their HNZ houses by 4 December if they did not appeal. Guess what they appealed yesterday, on the last day to do so, as stated by the Justice Wild.
I continue to strugle with this whole sorry saga, the cost earlier this year was put at $250,000, we have now had 2 further calls to the High Court, and now on we go to the Court of Appeal.
No doubt they are taking the matter as far as they are legally allowed, but fairs fair, the cost of all this, the state could have built 1 and 1/2 houses by now. By the end, possible have given all three families new homes. But they want to live there. GO FIGURE.
As a side note I see that currently Farmer Crescent is also been looked at for redevelopment, and a possible solution is the removal of the housing present, to be replaced by more modern and appropriate accomodation. Harks back to my discussion on my walk around.
Robyn Winther, Huia Tamaka and Billy Taylor were ordered to quit their homes after threats of intimidation and anti-social behaviour related to their Mongrel Mob partners.
They lost an appeal to the High Court and yesterday filed an application to take the case further.
