To help meet the high demand for housing in Rotorua, 37 new homes will be built for the vacant 2 hectare land on the corner of Ranolf Street and Malfroy Road in Rotorua, which was purchased by Kāinga Ora in mid-2021.

These modern, warm and dry houses will help provide Rotorua whānau in need of housing with a place to call home.

It will be a staged completion with 19 homes, 15 three-bedroom and 4 four-bedroom, completed December 2022.

What’s planned

  • 37 one and two-storey new homes
  • A mix of one, three and four-bedroom homes for smaller and larger groups of people, including families.
  • 20 of the homes will be able to be made accessible
  • A community room and shared green space
  • All homes will be low maintenance, fully insulated and with double glazing, carpets and curtains
  • Each home will have a deck and an easy to maintain and fenced private section with garden area
  • Fully landscaped site with natives and plants found locally
  • Internal loop road and allocated off-street parking for each home

A section of this land on the very corner of Ranolf Street and Malfroy Road is not included in these plans at this time, while different options to develop it in the future are looked at.

Next steps

  • With consents received, work has started on site, with completion of the homes from mid-2022
  • Thanks to everyone who attended our online community engagement session on Wednesday 13 October 2021.
