Out in the cold – a report on Dunedin housing

out in the cold

This report is “a survey of low income private rental housing in Dunedin 2013”.

In 2004 Presbyterian Support Otago undertook the same survey and now compares the results.

Some of the discoveries are:

  • Compared to 2004 where 36% of low income houses passed the standards, only 23% passed in 2013. That’s a 1/3 decrease.
  • Most tenants claim they can afford to heat only minimal living space in their homes to a safe level

It is a great opportunity to get to know what is happening and changing in Dunedin.
