Community housing

Everyone deserves to come home to a dry, warm, and safe whare. Our social housing units provide people aged 65 or older with secure, low-cost accommodation that is close to shops and public transport.

We own 26 social housing units in the Moana Court complex in Te Pene Avenue, Titahi Bay. These units provide people aged 65 or older with secure, low-cost accommodation that is close to shops and public transport. The units are managed by Wellington City Council's City Housing Unit.

To be eligible for a Moana Court property, you must have a low income and assets, and:

  • be 65 or older
  • have inadequate housing
  • be able to live independently at the time you apply
  • be a permanent resident or New Zealand citizen, or a new arrival who has applied for permanent residence or refugee status.

Porirua residents are given priority over other applicants for the units.

If you would like to know more about Moana Court or be added to the waitlist, please call Adrienne Samuela, City Housing at the Wellington City Council on (04) 499 4444.
