Minister for Maori Development and Associate Minister of Housing Hon Nanaia Mahuta today announced a $2.793 million investment to support a new papakainga in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty.

This investment will support Ranginui 12 Trust with infrastructure and construction costs to develop nine sites for housing on Maori land. The Trust is making their own considerable contribution of more than $2 million towards the project which totals $4.88m.

"This is a true example of Maori working in partnership with the Government to achieve housing aspirations to support thriving whanau," Minister Mahuta says.

"I commend Ranginui 12 Trust who are taking steps to ensure their whanau have access to safe and secure housing, despite the high purchase and rental prices in the region."

Tauranga is ranked among the most expensive housing in the world when measured against income.

"This papakainga will provide further opportunities for whanau to re-connect with their whenua but more importantly to live in a kaupapa Maori community," Minister Mahuta says.

The development of this papakainga is expected to be complete in June 2020 and will provide added support to two local marae; nga pae tapu o Hairini and Maungatapu Marae.

"A strong and thriving cultural identity is essential to sustainable social and economic development within whanau and communities. Not only does it reconnect Maori with their ancestral whenua but provides a strong sense of ownership and self-determination," Nanaia Mahuta says.

$2.7 miriona hei tautoko i tetahi papakainga hou ki Tauranga

Kua panuitia e te Minita Whanaketanga Maori, te Minita Whare Awhina hoki, a te Honore Nanaia Mahuta te putea $2.793 miriona hei tautoko i tetahi papakainga hou ki Tauranga, Te Moananui a Toi.

Ka tautoko tenei whakapaunga i te Ranginui 12 Trust ma te utu i nga utu hanganga, hanga whare hoki ki te whakawhanake i nga wahi e iwa mo nga whare i runga i te whenua Maori. Kei te whakapau hoki te Runanga i ta ratou ake putea, rua miriona tara, ki te kaupapa, he $4.88 miriona tara te katoa o te utu.

"He tauira tuturu tenei o ngai Maori e mahi ngatahi ana me te Kawanatanga kia eke panuku nga tumanako whare hei tautoko i nga whanau e momoho ake nei," ki ta Minita Mahuta.

"Ka nui te mihi ki te Ranginui 12 Trust e whakapau kaha nei ki te ata whakarite e taea ai e a ratou whanau te whai wahi atu ki nga whare haumaru, ahakoa te nui o te utu ki te hoko, ki te rihi whare ranei i te rohe.

Huri noa te ao ko Tauranga tetahi o nga wahi nui te utu mo te whare ina whakaritea ki te whiwhinga putea o te hunga mahi.

"Ma tenei papakainga e whai wahi nga whanau ki te hono ano ki to ratou whenua, ka mutu, te noho ki tetahi hapori kaupapa Maori," te ki a Minita Mahuta.

Tona tikanga ka oti te whakawhanaketanga o tenei papakainga hei te marama o Pipiri 2020, a, e tautoko hoki i nga marae tata e rua; nga pae tapu o nga marae o Hairini, o Maungatapu.

"He mea nui te tuakiri a-ahurea ki te whakapumautanga o te whanaketanga a-papori, a-ohanga hoki i roto i nga whanau me nga hapori. Ehara i te mea kei te hono ano noa iho i a ngai Maori ki o ratou whenua tupuna, engari, kei te whakahoki ano hoki i te rangatiratanga, otira, te tino rangatiratanga ki a ratou," te korero a Nanaia Mahuta.
