It seems that Council (commissioners?) have decided to sell the Hinau and Pitau Roads pensioner flats. Not worth doing up was a major reason, not the $20million value. So, do they think the same of their elderly tenants? ‘They will be relocated.’
Yes there’s still room for another couple of tents below Turret Road.
What’s wrong with slowly refurbishing the units so the tenants can stay. I’m sure they’re all happy there, they will know their neighbours and it’s a short stroll to the shops. I’m fairly sure Mount Maunganui Borough Council ratepayers will have paid for them some years ago and a substantial asset like that shouldn’t be disposed of. It will never be worth less than the current value.
