Merry Christmas everyone!
I hope the upcoming holiday break gives you the chance to spend time with whanau and friends after what’s been a really diffi cult year for many people in Tamaki.
Covid-19 has really changed the way many of us do things, including at Tamaki Regeneration (TRC). While we’ve had to learn to work from home more and talk to each other digitally, our mission is still the same – working hand-inhand with the community through efforts like our aff ordable housing programme and Tamaki Jobs & Skills Hub.
With that in mind, I’m excited about 2021. TRC has some really cool projects on the radar, which I’m keen to share with you.
At the top of the list, is the renal unit we’re working on with Auckland District Health Board and The Kidney Society to build in Point England. Tamaki has a high number of patients with kidney problems, who will be able to access dialysis treatment locally when the unit is finished in late 2021.
We’re also working on developing rental apartments for our key workers like teachers and nurses and sending less construction waste to landfill, starting with some of the old state homes from Concord Place that we’re refurbishing.
There’ll be more information to come on these projects in the next Mai Tamaki magazine, out next year.
In the meantime, stay safe, enjoy the warm weather and have a relaxing holiday break.
