Nga Potiki Housing Needs

May 2016


The purpose of this survey is to identify the housing needs amongst Nga Potiki so that we can develop a comprehensive housing strategy and plan for our current and future generations to get into home ownership and affordable rental accommodation on both Maori and General land within our tribal area. 

We know that many of our Nga Potiki whanau are living in overcrowded or unsuitable unaffordable housing or accommodation. This creates financial stress and ill health. Our population is also expected to triple by 2051 and we need strategies to house our children, mokopuna and kaumatua if we want them to continue living in our area. Our papakainga housing will help but we need to also now focus on bigger strategies involving housing on general land to meet our future needs.
