Eastern Porirua consists of eight neighbourhoods with approximately 18,000 residents and 2000 public houses. High concentration of poor quality housing, disadvantaged households and the long-term lack of investment since the 1970s contributed to producing poor social outcomes.

Redevelopment in Eastern Porirua will increase the social housing stock, build 1500 new homes of varing typologies and reduce the public housing concentration. This collaborative project also includes investment in infrastructure and social services. The redevelopment provides an opportunity to influence the housing, social, health and economic outcomes for its residents.

We are evaluating the outcomes of Eastern Porirua’s redevelopment, exploring how issues of construction, relocation, infrastructure enhancement affect residential wellbeing. We will present our longitudinal mixed methods approach to evaluating wellbeing outcomes of residents. We focus on the outcome areas realted to Housing, Health, Transport, Environment and Subjective Wellbeing, which will be investigated via a resident community survey, qualitative interviews with community stakeholders (e.g., kaumātua, leaders from various institutions) complimented by quantitative data obtained by our internal records and national administration data from the IDI. Collectively, all three research approaches offer a holistic picture of how the redevelopment influences the wellbeing of residents in Eastern Porirua.
