Te Ture Whenua Māori consultation / information sessions and or clinics

As you may be aware the public consultation rounds for input into the reforms of ‘Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993’ have been going around the country to 23 regional locations throughout the month of June 2015. That public consultation process has now closed.

Changes that make it easier for Māori land owners to use and develop their whenua have been the focus of discussion at these Hui. Consultation has taken place throughout the review and proposed reform of the Māori Land Act. Māori land owners are now being asked to give feedback on the draft Te Ture Whenua Māori Bill to ensure it is workable and reflects their aspirations. “The reform of Te Ture Whenua Māori is a landmark for Aotearoa New Zealand. It is essential that iwi, hapū and whanau Māori are informed and engaged in this reform”, says Māori Development Minister, Hon Te Ururoa Flavell.

NB: Māori Land Owners can make oral and written submissions on the Bill by 7th August 2015.

Te Puni Kōkiri has decided to hold a 1 day workshop and or technical clinics in Taranaki so as to bring whanau up to speed with the consultation document and to assist whanau with their submissions to the Māori Bill.

The 1 day information sessions or clinics and submission assistance will be held on:

Date: Friday 24th July 2015

Venue: NB: could you please respond by Wednesday 15th July to Roena Ruakere-Te Uira at if you think you will be attending as we need to assess the demand to run a couple of workshops and or technical clinics which will then determine a suitable venue

Start Time: 10.00am
