WGBW Panel Discussion - Homes not Houses. The Future Sustainable Developments.
New Zealand homes aren’t good enough. Over 700,000 of our homes are poorly insulated. And 40 per cent of our homes are damp and mouldy. Besides being bad news for our health, unhealthy homes are also bad news for our bank balance, as they cost more to heat.
But this is changing. Tens of thousands of new family homes are now set to be safer, healthier, happier places to be, after being built better.
Homes not Houses. The Future Sustainable Developments.
The panel will be hosted and chaired by Tony van Raat
