Ōtaki pilot project

What we’re doing

This project focusses on facilitating future housing development opportunities in Ōtaki, incorporating a te ao Māori perspective. The project will:

  • help deliver improved housing outcomes for iwi/Māori
  • inform approaches to future housing provision (including papakāinga), and the development of wider social and transport infrastructure tailored for Ōtaki, to support growth in the area that enables people to live well and thrive
  • broaden the understanding of factors that enable the successful Māori-led housing responses.


  1. Develop a Papakāinga toolkit
  2. Mapping of Maori and other land holdings, and identification of opportunities and barriers to development
