When good people leave

I am proud to have supported this documentary produced by Storyworks, with funding from NZ on Air. The documentary looks at the human side of Queenstown’s severely unaffordable housing, and the consequences its unsustainable trajectory is having on retaining workers in the area.

For years our local Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust has been fighting an uphill battle to create affordable housing. But when hard working families, with multiple jobs, have to pack up and leave for Australia because they can’t afford to live here it speaks volumes about the challenge ahead.
