Wairatahi Project - Flaxmere

Tamatea Pōkai Whenua is pleased to be advancing its “Wairatahi Project” at 238 Stock Road and 49A Dundee Drive, Flaxmere, Hastings. The Wairatahi Project is a long-planned housing development extension at the southern end of Flaxmere.  It is an opportunity for HTST to meet the needs of its people and the wider community for more diverse and affordable housing, while upholding TPW's environmental and cultural values.

Fast Track Consent Process and subsequent Plan Change:

Recognising the Project’s potential to provide significant employment (primarily in construction) and housing, the New Zealand Government has put the Wairatahi Project into the “fast-track consenting” process under the Covid recovery legislation.  TPW is also advancing a plan change that will introduce an extended Flaxmere Residential Zone (with some modifications) onto the Wairatahi site, to ensure the integrity of the District Plan remains once its resource consent is granted.  

The Details

Wairatahi will offer a range of housing options, including townhouses, detached dwellings, multi-generational homes, and standalone houses. A small neighbourhood centre, community gardens, playground, and central park connected to open space separating the development from the State Highway and a walkway network, including along the Irongate Stream, will also be provided, enhancing public amenity and connectivity.

TPW is committed to environmental stewardship, including the restoration and protection of the Irongate Stream.  


We strive for a sustainable future.

Join us in shaping Flaxmere's future!
