Ko ngā raru noho whare ki Aotearoa ka wānangahia e te minenga ka tae ki te rawa o ngā huihuingā Māori a-motu mō ngā take whare ki Tauranga. I roto i te toru rā ka whai reo ētahi matanga nō tāwāhi, o te motu tae noa ki ngā pōari kaitiaki Māori e kawe ana i ngā kaupapa whakatū whare.

He hawhe miriona tāra nuku atu te timatanga o ngā utu mo te hoko i tētahi whare ki konei he take ka āta tirohia ki tēnei whakaritenga.

E ai ki a Victoria Kingi (Nga Potiki, Ngāi Tahu), ““The issue affordability absolutely there are speaking that will be talking about that kaupapa and we will hear some specific kōrero around that and particular some of the models we see coming through.”

Ahakoa e huri ana te titiro o ngā pōari Māori ki huarahi kē e pā ana ki ngā tauira hoko whare hei tā Victoria Kingi kaitiaki ki runga o te koporeihana o Mangatawa Papamoa kei reira tonu ngā taiepa e aukati ana i a rātou. 

Hei tā Kingi, “The less linked up agencies are whether they are local or central government then the more barriers occur.”

Hei āpōpō ka tū ai a Robert Hall o Hawai'i ki te kauhau ki te minenga hei tāna kāre e rerekē ake tōna whenua e pā ana ki ngā raru whare ki tōna wā-kainga ko te iti o te whenua te raru nui.  

E ai ki a Robert J Hall (Aukai Pacific, Hawai'i), “Hawaii in itself is in a severe housing crises and you know living on an island only a limited amount of land and there is over 1.4 million people currently in Hawaii and housing is a direct dilemma for those you know who are unable to afford.”

Ko tōna tikanga ka puta ā kanohi te Minita take whare toko i te ora a Paula Bennett ki te hui.
