He Papakāinga, He Hāpori Taurikura - A Strategy for Homes and Thriving Communities

The finalised housing strategy is now available

Housing is one of the biggest issues the Rotorua community faces. As identified by the Ministry for Housing and Urban Development, our wonderful district has attracted a growing population, but without homes being built to meet our needs, resulting in severe housing deprivation. That lack of housing affects all parts of the Rotorua community, but it disproportionately affects Te Arawa peoples. As a result, Te Arawa and Council have identified safe, secure housing for all our people as our top shared priority to ensure positive, thriving communities.

This draft Strategic Framework puts people and wellbeing at the heart of our work to deliver more housing and to ensure communities are supported, safe, healthy and connected, with homes that match needs, and access to services and facilities.

An establishment governance group has supported the development of this draft strategy. The group includes MHUD, Rotorua Lakes Council and Te Arawa, and has strong connections with the work programmes of other agencies such as Ministry of Social Development, Kāinga Ora and the NZ Transport Agency.
