This panui is to advise you of the Public Consultation Hui on Te Ture Whenua Bill happening in early June 2015 – please feel free to disseminate as this is an important kaupapa for all whānau Māori.
Note that closing date for submissions is 3 July but the Iwi Leaders Group also has a schedule of meetings planned to receive Iwi feedback before making a submission to the Crown, and those hui will finish in August at the Iwi Leaders Forum hui at Hopuhopu.
Changes Te Ture Whenua Māori Act will be proposed to make it easier for Māori landowners to use their whenua, whilst still safeguarding it as a taonga tuku iho.
The changes also propose a new Māori Land Service giving owners easier access to land information in one place.
A new draft Bill will soon be released along with a document that summarises the proposed changes. This document will guide kōrero at a series of public consultation hui to be held in Tāmaki Makaurau.
