Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

He anticipated builders would have consents by early next year and start building what Todd calls a "parade of homes" by around February.

...those sections sold for an average of $450,000...

Stephen Martin, Todd senior development manager, said those sections sold for an average of $450,000 and Davies makes no bones about developing upmarket housing on the expensive land where 2500 houses are planned.
