Ruapehu District Council has partnered with Kāinga Ora and Ngāti Rangi to enable the development of residentially-zoned vacant land at Teitei Drive in Ohakune.

We have started engagement with the community to share proposed plans and to understand the needs of the community – now and for the future.

The need for more homes

Ohakune and surrounding townships need more warm, dry and healthy homes to meet their current needs. Many factors have resulted in a constrained housing supply, including:

  • A shortage of readily available land without covenants and with infrastructure in place
  • Regulatory challenges
  • Construction industry capacity issues and rising costs
  • General development feasibility challenges
  • A high number of privately owned holiday homes that are often vacant and unavailable for long-term rental.

We want to make a positive difference to the community by improving housing quality and choice and improving local amenity.

Teitei Drive's proposed development aligns with Ruapehu District Council’s strategy to tackle Ohakune’s housing challenges by working with the Government and others to increase the availability of warm, dry, affordable homes for both private and public rental and purchase in the next few years.

It’s about planning for the future needs of a vibrant, thriving community.
