Ngāti Whātua defend housing ambition

Talisa Kupenga

He painga nui ka puta mo Ngāti Whātua ki Ōrakei me tōna rahi rima mano mai tō rātou kaupapa hanga whare i Te Rakipaewhenua. Engari, e whakahē ana nga kainoho o taua takiwā i te whainga a te iwi.

E ai ki ngā nohonga o taua rohe, ka raru ēnei whakaritenga I ngā rori, ngā kura hoki.

Mohio pai ana a Ngati Whatua ki nga awangawanga e rere nei, pera i te matotorutanga o te waka i nga rori, te kikii rawa o nga kura, me nga ahuatanga kitenga.

Hei tā te tumu whakarae o te taha ōhanga o Ngati Whatua a Rob Hutchinson, "We're sympathetic to the issues and we'd like to think that in our framework plan that we have put in we've got - not necessarily all the answers, but we've certainly got the techniques and the tools to be able to manage as best we can."

He tekau orau o nga whare ka mama ake te utu. Ahakoa i tenei wa he $600,000 tara ona wariu. Ko te toenga ka kake i te $2 miriona tara te utu.

Ko te mātatorutanga o nga waka ki te huarahi kotahi, tetahi o nga tino take mo te Poari o Takarunga.

E ai kit e hemana o te kaunihere o Takapuna a Joseph Bergin, “Congestion on Lake Road at the moment is regionally significant. It's one of the worst roads in Auckland, and anything that's seen to add to that is going to be negatively responded to. Really what we want to see is clever travel planning. There is a really useful ferry terminal just down the road from this development and as much as possible we want people to use public transport."

Ki te whakaae nga mahere nei, ka timata te mahi hei te tau 2018, ka mutu, ka uru tuatahi ai nga kainoho hei te tau 2019
