Since the Auckland Māori Housing Summit in April the Independent Māori Statutory Board has completed a scoping exercise for an Auckland Māori housing strategy and action plan, and worked to establish support for such a strategy among community and government. Led by discussion at the summit, our working name for this project is the Kāinga strategic action plan.
In July the Board committed to continuing development of the strategic action plan. The Board recognised the direction set at the summit; that this task is urgent, and the focus is on the work that needs to be done rather than an unnecessarily long process of planning.
For these reasons, the Board has put in place a project timeline for the strategic action plan, providing windows for broad on-going input, consultation on a final draft document concluding mid-October, and finalisation by December 2018.
