Our responsibilities to Māori

Our responsibilities to Māori

Updated 29 June 2015 11:10am

Greater Wellington is committed to working with Māori to build resilient, connected and prosperous whānau, hapū and iwi and enhance our natural assets.

In achieving this, GWRC recognises that:

  • positive and effective relationships with mana whenua are critical to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes
  • clearly identified strategic goals and objectives will allow mana whenua and GWRC to map the aspirations of iwi and measure and monitor achievements
  • remaining alert to opportunities and identifying new ways of doing things in a dynamic and changing environment will help GWRC and Māori to achieve their aspirations and protect and enhance our natural assets
  • enabling taura here/matāwaka active participation will help build connected Māori within the community.

Success in these areas will enable us to meet our obligations to tangata whenua under the Resource Management Act 1991 and to Māori under the Local Government Act 2002 and other legislation.
