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.

OPINION - Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: TVNZ Journalist Jehan Casinader, has written a remarkably shallow evaluation of the corrosive Orange Tamariki child uplift programme and has bewilderingly concluded the problem is Māori, not the policy.
