Ngai Tahu open new social and affordable housing in Christchurch

Apr 27, 2016 | News

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu announced the completion of its Addington housing project, which was launched last week in Lincoln Road.The project has seen three earthquake-affected houses in Sumner moved to Addington and renovated to provide modern comfortable homes for whānau still struggling with the impact of the earthquakes.

“It is our intention that the Addington pilot is just the beginning of a much greater focus on housing initiatives including how we create opportunities for home ownership. We have begun here in Christchurch because of the obvious need created post quakes but we are very conscious of our need to be looking at our options throughout the Ngāi Tahu takiwā,” said Mark Soloman of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu.

The iwi-led project has been completed in partnership with the Rātā Foundation and Te Puni Kōkiri. Community housing provider Comcare will be responsible for managing and tenancy of the houses and providing tenant support on an ongoing basis.
