Local housing needs to be affordable, sustainable, and environmentally appropriate for

whānau across Raetihi, Ohakune and Waiouru.

As part of our research an in-depth survey was conducted with over 10% of locally occupied homes providing insights from whānau about the issues they identified as the most important to address. At the same time we have gathered kōrero on their unique housing aspirations. These rich insights

informed the development of a new Ruapehu Housing Action Plan: 

'Te Whare Āhuru ki Ruapehu' which is currently being implemented.


Four priority areas identified are:​

Home Ownership  ​   

Repairs & Maintenance    

Heating Solutions  ​

Scope and establish a Ruapehu Housing Enterprise so that we can continue to deliver housing solutions and aspirations, beyond this plan, alongside our whānau
