Urban Plus Limited is wholly owned by Hutt City Council and operates as a Council-Controlled Trading Organisation (CCTO). We were established in May 2007 as a specialist property company tasked with supporting the objectives of Hutt City Council. As a CCTO we are required to conduct our affairs in accordance with sound business practice.
Since taking ownership of Council’s portfolio of social housing in 2007 we have managed and invested into this portfolio ever since. Our rental housing is targeted towards the low-income elderly of the Hutt Valley. We also provide specialist property services and advice to Council and are involved in a range of property development activities.
As a CCO, we are able to ensure the best of both worlds for our clients. We use our business acumen to make the best possible financial return, while at the same time using our public sector knowledge and expertise to ensure we meet our clients’ social objectives.
Our team has extensive experience in property related operations and is led by CEO Craig Walton. This, combined with a governance board made up of both private and public sector directors, gives the company an unrivalled position of strength in the public sector housing and property development market.
