Housing infrastructure for new Pahiatua Hillcrest development to commence in February

Published 31 Jan 2024

Enabling infrastructure that will support approximately 50 new build houses at the former Hillcrest School site in Pahiatua is set to commence on 12 February.

The site will be prepared with the necessary water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure that will facilitate the building of the new homes and better services to the surrounding, existing properties.  Tū Mai Rā Investments LP Rangitāne will oversee the building and occupancy of the new homes with a focus on protecting the notable trees and sustainable designs, including solar and stormwater management.  This is planned to commence in 2025 with a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses being built.

This vital work will be undertaken from 12 February through to 12 July 2024 with work taking place between 7am to 6pm.

The work will be taking place along Princess Street, between Main Street (State Highway 2) and Lawson Street, including the intersections at Kauri Place, Huxley Street, Tyndall Street and Sedcole Street.  Traffic management will be in place for the duration of the works.  The works will be completed in stages, so residents are asked to be on the lookout for changes in traffic management and follow the signs.  Access to properties and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the work period.

There will be no disruption to electricity, water, gas or telephone services but there may be traffic delays at times, increased noise, dust and vibration during work hours.

Safety is a big priority, so please keep children and pets away from worksites.   On-site contractors will help people get around the site.
