First stage of Ngāi Tahu's 350-home Queenstown development approved

Work on a 350-home development in central Queenstown is set to begin after approval was given for the first stage.

Ngāi Tahu Property chief executive David Kennedy said a resource consent granted by the Queenstown Lakes District Council allowed the iwi to subdivide the former Wakatipu High School site into large blocks and begin installing roads and pipes.

Papakāinga development to help Māori into home ownership

Houses rising out of freshly-graded earth at a Lower Hutt development are destined to help Māori into home ownership.

With Māori home ownership rates below that of the national average, Taranaki Whānui are constructing the first of 89 new dwellings at the Te Puna Wai papakāinga housing project in Wainuiomata.

The homes will be for sale to members of Taranaki Whānui, a group of iwi that settled in the Wellington region in the 1830s. The mixed-model development will also contain rentals, houses available under a shared equity scheme and ones that qualify for the Government's First Home Grant.
