Last week we were honored to join Ngā Potiki kaumatua, trustees and iwi members, along with cultural monitors, an archaeologist, previous leasees, and others involved in the Manawa Papamoa project to officially bless the land for the development, ahead of earthworks.
This marked an historic moment for both Ngā Potiki and the Manawa Papamoa development as initial works begin, ahead of the bulk earthworks which are scheduled to start in the next few months. The archaeologist was present to check for archaeological sites, alongside Ngā Potiki RMU monitors who were checking for any cultural heritage.
Papakainga Solutions Limited is proud to be partnering with Ngā Potiki on such a milestone project, for both the Bay of Plenty region and this iwi in particular. PSL is working to develop Ngā Potiki Housing, apprenticeships and job opportunities on behalf of Ngā Potiki Trust.
