Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki launched its Belmont Village Kiwibuild development in Pukekohe on Saturday.

The iwi and its building partners have committed to build 90 dwellings in six stages of 15 at the northwest edge of the town.

Chair James Brown says while there is a lot of sideline noise from opposition politicians about KiwiBuild missing its targets, the tribe sees it as a great opportunity to tackle the housing crisis.

He says the response to the development website launched last week shows there is strong demand for the compact but high quality houses on offer.

If Ngāi Tai members meet KiwiBuild criteria they will be given priority, and the iwi is also contemplating models like shared equity to assist its whānau into houses.

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.
