Registration of Interest is requested from developers, housing companies, architects, designers and housing trusts and other interested parties.

For the design and development of innovative sustainable affordable housing.
1. On a 2290m2 site within the Omokoroa Special Housing area.
2. For other yet to be identified sites within Tauranga City and Western Bay

SmartGrowth Requirements:
The purpose of this Registration of Interest is to invite suitably qualified respondents to demonstrate their relevant experience, expertise and capability, to design and construct affordable housing on a block of land up to 4,000sqm in area.
The land may be either:
 that offered by the WBOPDC within the Omokoroa Special Housing Area as shown in Appendix 1, or
 any other similar sized land that is appropriately located for affordable housing.(note that smaller sized properties will be considered).

The Western Bay of Plenty District Council has a 17.6ha area of land which has become a ‘Special Housing Area’ (SHA) as per the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013. Part of the conditions of the Omokoroa SHA, is that the developer would be required to offer 25% of the dwellings for sale at less than $420k and a further 25% offered below $470k. In addition, an area of the site has been made available for the delivery of this Pilot Project. This land will be made available at market valuation, and with the option of deferring payment for the land. Details are set out in Appendix 1.

The Smartgrowth HAF and Western Bay of Plenty District Council are seeking responses from individual organisations and consortia with the capability and capacity to deliver good quality affordable housing. Respondents are expected to be property development organisations, construction companies and/or
providers of capital. This does not preclude responses from other organisations who believe that they can finance, design and construct houses that meet the desired project objectives. Proposals that deliver all requirements for design, construction, property development, capital and identification of alternative funding and ownership models will be favoured.

Innovative and creative solutions are sought to meet the project objectives with an open invitation to propose combinations of housing tenure, ownership arrangements, property management solutions, and sustainable design and construction techniques.
