The model towns prescription is now a very important solution for the accommodation and assimilation of families displaced by rural / urban drift , and climate change impacts.
This new and exciting housing subdivision will be developed to assist families living in the model town and squatters move onto their own home ownership.
This will involve fully engineered and serviced subdivision and various home options which will be for sale to selected families.
We describe the problem of rural / urban drift, not as a drift, but as an avalanche!! There is already more than 100 people of Polynesian origin living at Koroipita. Their assimilation has been a joy, a truly uplifting experience. We have frequent family squabbles to deal with but we have never had an inter-racial incident involving friction between races.
That is the scale and pace needed to address current problems and future immigration – believe this!
Our prescription for the future settlement of immigrants is to mix them in the proportion 50/50% with local families, for rapid assimilation.
