Working collaboratively and understanding Wairoa’s issues ata local level will form the basis of the district’s housing strategy.
Wairoa District Council’s Economic Development Committee is leading Council’s housing strategy, which includes partnering with other local organisations and groups to ensure a whole of community approach to Wairoa’s housing issues. Alongside iwi and others, Council representatives attended the Māori Housing hui held in Hastings to gain further knowledge at a regional level.
Wairoa District Councillor and Economic Development chairman Denise Eaglesome-Karekare said the hui highlighted the need to work collaboratively while ensuring Wairoa’s localised issues were also understood.
“We need homes, and we need to build these homes. I’m excited about what we’ve come away with and the contacts we have made so we can source the resources to help us achieve these builds and how by working in partnership we can drive development.”
Councillors Goldsack and Kaimoana said one of the key takeaway points from the hui was seeing papakainga as a pathway to home ownership for Māori and the scope Wairoa has for this.
