The corner of Ohaupo Rd/Sandleigh Rd provides housing, employment and play, all within a few dozen metres of the front door. So it’s not surprising more people want to live here, including quite young people (Median age 18 years) and increasingly wealthier people (Median income $52.5k, up from $27.5k in 2001)

The Pembroke St city block closest to the hospital is clearly a good location: there are more people, who are younger, with more money and they are people who are willing to share their homes. The number of people living here has increased from 126 in 2001 to 144 in 2013, yet the number of dwellings has stayed at 51 over this time. This is an area where adding more dwellings would have a good outcome, but the district plan doesn’t zone this area for growth. Because of this, the outcome could be dwelling types that are designed for renting by the room (tenement housing). pembroke-tidd-st
