For the people of Porirua

Porirua is a welcoming community built on heritage, mana and a sense of belonging. Te Rā Nui, Eastern Porirua Development (Te Rā Nui), a partnership between Kāinga Ora, Porirua City Council and Ngāti Toa Rangatira, is the visionary programme making this an even stronger community for the people of Porirua.

With over 2,000 new homes and over 2,000 existing homes upgraded, quality housing will create more ownership options, jobs and business opportunities and attract new people to live here. Collectively it will bring even greater energy, pride and prosperity to this culturally rich community.

But Te Rā Nui is so much more than just about building warm, dry and healthy homes. It’s about creating a resilient and happy community where families thrive – from this generation to the next. This project looks to positively contribute to the total wellbeing of the area, from its people through to its roads, green spaces and waterways. How streets can be improved and parks and public spaces upgraded, providing places for locals to connect and enabling the beauty and vibrancy of Porirua’s neighbourhoods to shine.
