Kia ora Ngāti Whakaue;
This email is to update you on a major development which was unannounced on Wednesday regarding infrastructure investment alongside our lands by Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones on Wharenui Road and SH30.
The announcement brings incredible opportunity for the Incorporation as it vastly improves the infrastructure beside our lands allowing for much wider development opportunities and potentially significant increases in revenue from them.
So, in the short term, we will work on a plan to understand what provides the maximum benefit from these opportunities which include in housing development, which would help with jobs and in getting our people into homes.
The announcement for roading and storm water infrastructure, was some much-needed good news for our people and all of Rotorua and significant for Ngāti Whakaue because it provides momentum to support the development of our lands.
This is something about, not losing anything, only gaining. We will work on how this can be best maximised for our whanau and report back in the coming months with a view to present details at the next AGM. We are expecting further developments and announcements next week.
