What sort of community do you want to live in? We have come together to ensure Paekākāriki has the diversity and participation we treasure. By taking small steps that make a real difference to the lives of people in our village, we want to emphasise that housing is not a game for gain. Our homes are places where we grow and thrive and build caring communities. Housing affordability is a very serious and immediate issue. House prices are driving those who want to live here out of our village. But as a small connected community we can do something.
