Whātua Āhurutanga – Housing Strategy
The Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Trust is pleased to release the Whātua Āhurutanga Housing Strategy.
The strategy was written by Whatua Ahurutanga in response to a Trust goal of creating a housing strategy for whanau. Last year the trust created Whatua Ahurutanga by accepting two nominees each from the boards of Whai Maia and Whai Rawa as well as two trust board members in addition to two whanau members. The komiti was disbanded in June shortly after delivering the strategy to the trust and on August 5 the trust presented the strategy to the hapu at a Whanau Wananga.
The report makes recommendations which the trust is still considering. Whanau are reminded that this document is the strategy recommended by Whātua Āhurutanga but about which the trust must still decide whether it accepts it as a whole, or in part - or none at all. The strategy is well researched and backed up by evidence gained from extensive whanau consultation. The trust's key challenge is to make sure the issues identified by Whātua Āhurutanga are addressed in a way that is appropriate for the trust.
The trust has thanked Whātua Āhurutanga for their work in person during their presentation to the trust but takes this opportunity to once more thank the Chair, Precious Clarke for the great work done by the komiti - and also thanks Leon Wijohn of Deloitte and his team for their support of Whātua Āhurutanga and our whanau.
