This report explored constraints to homeownership for Māori in the Auckland metropolitan area.

This was part of a series of reports examining barriers in specific regions and while these suffer from small sample sizes, they do provide useful information about the barriers that prevent home ownership. In this report on housing issues in the Auckland area, it is stated that there needed to be a more coherent system to addressing housing need. This system would have to understand the cultural and spiritual significance of Māori concepts related to housing, such as kāinga and tūrangawaewae. In addition to this there needed to be better coordination between government departments and that the lack of co-ordination was due to the devolution of government services that occurred during the late 80’s and 90’s. Although, the lack of co-ordination of services was raised as an issue there were no examples of what that means (i.e. how services lack co-ordination), and how the problem could be rectified.
