Auckland's Independent Māori Statutory Board wants to see more Māori involvement in fixing the city's housing problems.

The board last night considered its priorities for the last year of its current term, including boosting Māori involvement in tourism, getting more sites of cultural significance listed on planning schedules and its kainga action plan.

Chair David Taipari says housing ministers Phil Twyford and Nanaia Mahuta have supported the plan and there could be opportunities coming through the proposed new Urban Development Agency.

The board wants to see Māori, including iwi and mātāwaka, develop land freed up by treaty settlements.

"That's hands on stuff, being involved rather than just talking about it. Council, working through with them, we'll find a number of areas where they will be able to do stuff as enablers but I think the key here is central government and those who really want to get involved with developing, and that means bringing Māori capacity up," Mr Taipari says.

If Jacinda wants to win a second term, she needs to tell us her new 100 day vision
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: Last election, Andrew Little looked at the slumping polls 3 moths out from the 2017 ballot and said, 'I can't lead this Party to victory', and in the most unselfish, most progressive political move in NZ history, stood aside to allow Jacinda Ardern to become leader.
The Maaori Party could spoil Jacinda's dreams for a second term
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The Māori Party have selected the exceptionally talented Debbie Ngarewa-Packer as their candidate in the very vulnerable seat of Te Tai Hauāuru and it represents the biggest threat to Jacinda's dreams for a second term than any other political challenge.
Why National's beneficiary bashing is really dog whistle politics
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: National has promised a spiteful range of draconian measures against beneficiaries that have nothing whatsoever to do with helping those on the benefit and everything to do with dog whistling to National's reactionary base.
