About this house
Abbeyfield Greymouth is working with Abbeyfield Properties to develop a house for 12 residents. The house will provide much-needed affordable rental housing for over-65s on the West Coast.
The Grey District Council has already donated a site, on the corner of Palmerston St and Marsden Rd, and a start has been made on putting the road and services in place.
Development West Coast has made a $500,000 commitment to the project, which it says is aligned to the region’s housing and aged care strategies. It says the Abbeyfield house will help increase the availability of affordable, stable and welcoming housing for older Coasters. It will also have a positive economic benefit for the region.
Abbeyfield Greymouth still needs to raise significant funding to build the house and it hopes the West Coast community will get behind the project. When established, the house will enable more Coasters to live out their lives in their local community, rather than being forced to leave the region to find suitable housing.
