This block of 10 newly built kaumātua houses was opened in 2012 on Ngā Pōtiki tribal land in the western Bay of Plenty. The houses were part of the Special Housing Action Zone scheme, where the government partners with charitable trusts and rural Māori communities to build new housing on Māori land. In this case the partners were Mangatawa Papamoa Blocks Incorporated, Housing New Zealand, Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust and Te Puni Kōkiri. The next stage in the process was to build 20 homes for low-income families.
