Overarching Aim

Understand the effect of public housing governance on aspects of tenant and community wellbeing and urban regeneration, by analysing how well each provider’s governance structures support the achievement of their stated wellbeing ambitions and on wellbeing overall.

Three research sub-questions:

  1. To what extent do organisational governance arrangements contribute to:
    • the delivery of wellbeing outcomes in the public housing case studies?
    • the delivery of improved Māori wellbeing outcomes?
  2. To what extent do collaborative governance arrangements contribute to:
    • the delivery of wellbeing outcomes in the public housing case studies?
    • the delivery of improved Māori wellbeing outcomes?
  3. To what extent does the investment decision making process contribute to:
    • the delivery of wellbeing outcomes in the public housing case studies?
    • the delivery of improved Māori wellbeing outcomes?

Scope of governance: shareholder direction; organisational strategy and outcomes; plans and priorities; decision making; development plans and procedures; roles and accountability of board, executive, delivery staff; reporting and evaluation.
