Ngāti Whātua deal generous to Aucklanders

Parliament today passed the Ngāti Whatua ō Orakei settlement bill, marking what the hapū says is a generous gift to the people of Auckland.

A previous settlement returned land around Takaparawha-Bastion Point to the hapū but required most of it to be kept as a reserve.

Spokesperson Ngarimu Blair says the tribe was realistic about what it could expect from the historic claim settlement process.

"It's still unbelievable to many how our elders agreed to share Bastion Point given the massive loss of land that we had and so I guess that generosity caries through to this settlement because it isn't a large settlement, it's $16m cash for the loss of 80,000 acres of Auckland land. We've agreed to accept it and carry on and keep moving forward," he says.

Ngāti Whātua will use the $16 million of settlement cash as the down payment on $120 million of crown land, including naval housing and facilities in Devonport.
