Pathways to Papakāinga

What we’re doing

The focus of this project is to develop guidance material, alongside whānau and hapū in the Kāpiti Coast district, that will support whānau/hapū in their aspirations to develop papakāinga housing in the district. The project will:

  • facilitate a forum through which whānau can connect wtih each other, share knowledge, and develop expertise to develop papakāinga in the district
  • develop guidance to enable whānau to navigate developing papakāinga housing within their rohe / district
  • Provide a model (including guidance produced) that can be applied in other parts of the motu / country.


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