Overarching Aim

To investigate public housing providers’ decision-making and theory of change concerning the provision of community infrastructure and placemaking efforts; and in turn, tenants’ perceptions and experiences of neighbourhood pertaining to individual and community wellbeing.

Top 3 objectives

  1. To understand each provider’s placemaking efforts and community infrastructure provision to support tenant, Māori and community wellbeing, including the processes, decision-making and theories of change related to this provision.
  2. To map geographic access to community resources – recreational, educational, cultural, health, financial and transport – within tenants’ neighbourhood.
  3. To understand tenants’ neighbourhood experiences of place, belonging to place, of social capital and cohesion, and of safety and security.
