Tauranga has been chosen as one of four locations to host a hearing as part of the Cross Party Inquiry into Homelessness.

The inquiry has been launched by the Labour, Green and Maori parties will be holding a hearing in Tauranga on August 29 from 1pm to 4pm at the Wesley Centre, 13th Ave.

"The fact that Tauranga has been chosen as a venue for one of four hearings across the country is an acknowledgement of how serious the issue of homelessness has become right across the region" said Labour's Housing Spokesperson Phil Twyford, who is one of the MPs sitting on the hearing panel.

The hearing is open to the public and people are encouraged to come along and hear more about this important issue.
