Mehemea he uri koe o Ngāti Ranginui, ā, he uaua māu te kimi whare, kua waimarie pea koe.
Hei tā Te Tarahiti take tiriti o Ngāti Ranginui a Robert Erwin ‘The housing situation I think is like most of NZ, the property prices are quite high, where possible we want to get our whānau into homes. Tauranga is no different.’
E ai ētahi rangahau a 'Australian Firm Demographia' i te tau rua mano tekau ko Tauranga kei te turanga rua tekau mō ngā wāhi nui te utu o te ao o ngā whenua e ono, ko Amerika, Kānata me Piritane ētahi.
‘Ko ētahi o ngāi mātou kāore kau he whare, kua roa nei tēnei kaupapa e takoto ana kia waenganui i a mātou’ e kī.ana a Morehu Ngatoko mai te Te Tarahiti take tiriti o Ngāti Ranginui.
Ko ngā whare kaporeihana kotahi rau tekau mā rima e noho ana e rua mairo atu i ngā marae matua e toru o Ngāti Ranginui a Huria, Hairini me Waimapu. Ko te manako ka hokihoki mai te marea ki te marae.
The negotiators wanted to have housing corp homes as part of RFR, to be close to the marae so people could come home, people could be near the marae, help with maintances, get involved in the marae activities as well.’ hei tā Morehu Ngatoko.
E manako ana hoki a Ngāti Ranginui ka mahi tahi rātou me Westpac, ā, ka toro atu ki ngā rawa o ngā take tiriti kia tutuki ai tā rātou whainga.
