Te Keteparaha mō ngā Papakāinga
The Māori Housing Toolkit is a step-by-step guide designed to assist Māori to develop papakāinga proposals (development plan) on multiple owned Māori land. The concept of papakāinga is not new and has traditionally been associated with Māori housing in a Marae setting. Papakāinga includes other activities such as: kōhanga reo, kura kaupapa, health clinic, horticulture or agriculture land uses, sports and/or recreational areas, urupā and heritage sites etc.
Developing Māori land is time consuming and challenging because of the large number of people and organisations involved with separate processes and compliance standards. The process recognises the joint customary ownership complexities and nuances of Māori freehold land that create additional hurdles and costs for whānau to meet compared with the relative ease of building homes on an individual freehold title.
In order to achieve the outcomes of the first 3 Steps of the toolkit, you will require a commitment from the trustees and other shareholders / whānau to work for the collective benefit of all the current and future owners in the land. The voluntary nature of this establishment phase of the Trusts journey are the seeds that grow a common social, cultural and environmental commitment by whānau to the whenua.
The toolkit breaks the whole process up into five steps. Each step is broken down into achievable actions, questions, decisions and the next step in a timely manner.

TE PAE TUATAHI - KAUPAPA
What is the purpose, vision and rationale for your proposed papakāinga? In a nutshell, why are you doing this?
TE PAE TUARUA - RANGAHAU
The essence of Rangahau is research and fact finding and requires you / the Trust to gather information from the Māori Land Court and the respective Council about your Māori land block.
TE PAE TUATORU - WHIRIWHIRI
The next part of the journey requires you to pull the rest of the whānau on board. You’ll need to start by calling a meeting with the landowners. The Māori Land Court staff are the best people to seek advice on how to do this.
TE PAE TUAWHA - NGĀ MAHI HANGARAU
Te Pae Tuawha - Ngā Mahi Hangarau (technical work) refers to the detailed technical design, drawings, options and associated costs necessary to progress and confirm the Trust’s papakāinga proposal.
