Māori

The Resource Management Act 1991 recognises that iwi have a special cultural and spiritual relationship with the environment. So when making a decision on resource consent applications, we must recognise and provide for the relationship of Māori, their culture and their traditions with their ancestral lands, water sites, waahi tapu and other taonga. We must also consider the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi and kaitiakitanga.
