Decision-making time for homelessness in Lower Hutt

Hutt City Council is about to start considering possible responses to homelessness in Lower Hutt, including Council’s contribution to tackling the problem.

Several options, one of which will become part of a plan to prevent vulnerable families becoming homeless and improve access to housing for those who are homeless, will be discussed at an extraordinary Policy and Regulatory Committee meeting on Monday 25 March.

As part of a homelessness strategy, already agreed to by Council, an action plan will be coordinated with the city’s social service providers, which have been a central part of the research and development of the strategy.

Principal Research and Policy Advisor John Pritchard says it quickly became clear during the research phase that only a city-wide approach to solving homelessness will work.
