Tei tei Drive update 28 February 2024

Kainga Ora - Homes and Communities is withdrawing as the developer of the proposed mixed housing development at Teitei Drive in Ohakune. As we have progressed further through detailed design and planning phases, it has become clear that the CIP funding will not be sufficient to complete the project as it was originally proposed three years ago.

This, combined with current economic and market pressures, has meant that the project is not financially viable for Kainga Ora, and we would be unable to deliver on the affordable housing outcomes.

You can find more information in the letter we have shared with the community [PDF, 179 KB] and the FAQ [PDF, 127 KB].
