KiwiBuild not ‘crashing and burning’

There has been a lot of coverage of the failure of KiwiBuild to come close to meeting it’s first milestone target of 1000 houses by the end of June.

Yesterday Phil Twyford conceded that they might manage a paltry 300 –300 KiwiBuilds by July – and many of those have simply been purchased ‘off the plan’ and would have been built by developers anyway.

KiwiBuild is not crashing and burning, because there is bugger all to crash and burn. It’s problem is that it hasn’t even ignited yet.

In opposition Twyford and Labour had claimed there was a housing crisis. The failure of KiwiBuild may be a growing crisis for the Government.
