For a variety of reasons, Ngāti Tamaoho Trust is suddenly involved in several different types of housing developments.
Hopefully it will provide opportunities for some of our Ngāti Tamaoho members to get into home ownership; if you don't have your own home yet it's too early for us to have any specific details, but with houses possibly starting to become available in 2019-20 it's definitely not too early to be deciding what you want and how it might be achieved.
If you have wanted to own a home but don't know where to start Waikato-Tainui are facilitating housing workshops for ALL Waikato-Tainui members; the Auckland workshops have been held in our office. The next one in Auckland is scheduled for Saturday10 November, 2018 followed by one in early February. You do need to register your interest with Waikato-Tainui before you can attend.
Waikato Tainui also have a "First Home Buyers Programme", Expressions of Interest have been extended to 4pm Wednesday 14th of November.
Te Kaarearea is a pilot 50-home residential development that aims to provide Waikato-Tainui iwi memebers who are first home buyers access to purchase new homes in Hamilton. Situated in Hamilton East within close proximity to schools, a health and shopping centres the development will have a range of 3 & 4 bedroom homes available to purchase from early 2019
We want to make sure everyone who is Ngāti Tamaoho and who wants information on any housing opportunities that arise, gets it. We don't want to overload people who are not interested, let us know if you would like to be put on our housing mailing list; we will continue to notify every one of the main news, but those on the mailing list will get more detail.
