Spending to improve water supply and roads will enable the development of over 1,000 papakāinga, affordable houses and the market.

Mayor K Gurunathan says Ōtaki has the highest level of housing need on the Kāpiti Coast with the greatest affordability pressures on residents.

The money is part of the $179 million Infrastructure Acceleration Fund spending announced today by Housing Minister Megan Woods.

Gisborne District Council is receiving $4.2 million for water supply, storm water and road improvements in the Taruheru catchment area.

Managing Director Nedine Thatcher Swann said this would allow the development of over 450 new homes over the next 10 years, including a Toitū Tairāwhiti site for mana whenua housing and a wellness centre.

Rotorua, Ōmokoroa, Kaikōura, Napier and New Plymouth will also receive putea.
