Ngā Pōtiki Housing
Manawa Community Housing Trust is approved by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, and is committed to working closely with key stakeholders to assist Māori land trusts to realize their aspirations to provide quality affordable housing for whānau while simultaneously helping them to build capacity.
As a developer, we build communities that have regard to the Ngā Pōtiki cultural landscapes and seascapes and empower residents. Our comprehensive Te Manawa o Papamoa development at Te Houhou will eventually comprise of up to 300 homes on 27ha and is intended to cater for a broader housing need that reflects current market trends and aspirations.
Tena koutou ngā whānau ā Ngā Pōtiki.

Key Housing Goals
Crown estimates record our current Ngā Pōtiki population sitting around 2500. The local suburbs of Arataki, Te Maunga, Pāpāmoa, Kairua and Welcome Bay are areas traditionally populated by Ngā Pōtiki whānau.
However, as our tribal estate diminished through questionable land sales and public works takings for a rubbish dump and sewage ponds, and other activities to service the growth of Tauranga, Ngā Pōtiki people were forced to live outside this traditional area.
