Housing & Thriving Communities

Council is working with urgency on many fronts to enable more housing in Rotorua. Together with partners such as Te Arawa, central Government agencies and local housing providers, a coordinated approach is underway to achieve a better Rotorua with more housing choices and thriving communities.

Like much of Aotearoa New Zealand, Rotorua is facing a housing crisis. There are a significant number of local people living in, or on the brink of, serious housing distress.
