Whakapakari Te Kāinga Wānanga update

Tēnā koutou!

Exciting developments continue to move forward on the planning stage for the Whakapakari Te Kāinga project!

At our last kanohi ki te kanohi hui on the 7th of August 2021, our architects presented detailed concept drawings, which made more real some of the options for the future of Te Aroha and Mahi Tamariki. There were many key points to consider, but some major priorities were identified, and our architects have carefully put together a summary of detailed concept plans, based on the feedback we have been receiving by you, uri of Ngāti Mutunga.

These detailed plans can be viewed in the links provided at the bottom of this page.

With the unwelcome interruption of Covid-19 making its way back to Aotearoa, we also had to adapt quickly to a sudden lockdown at the end of August 2021. Our last wānanga was held on the 25th September 2021 via zoom. This went successfully despite the sudden changes in our environment, and here we discussed in greater detail, the plans and designs provided to us by our architect’s – Studio Pacific.
