Tauranga City Council is paying to boost tangata whenua involvement in its resource planning.

Councillors this week voted to allocate $30,000 a year for Tauranga hapū to develop management plans.

The plans will describe important resource management issues and areas of interest and give advice on cultural values, historical accounts and social, economic and cultural issues of concern to the 13 hapū.

Management plans must be considered when councils decide on resource consents.

With a view to future co-governance issues, the plans can be used to set future direction in relation to social, economic and cultural issues as well as environmental issues.

Tangata Whenua Committee member Rean Tuanau says the money will mean council, hapū and iwi can plan for changes coming out of the treaty settlements, including any co-governance arrangements that may be negotiated.

Little's Time
OPINION: Andrew Little has to do a lot if he is to make Labour a formidable opposition, giving them any hope of toppling National in three years’ time. Little was on Tuesday voted as the man to lead Labour into a new era of politics - this was on the back of major support he got from his union mates.
The myths white people tell themselves
OPINION: John Key's extraordinary statements last week on NZ History in relation to the Waitangi Tribunal's finding that Maori did not cede sovereignty when they signed the Treaty in 1840 is a case study in ignorance, cultural arrogance and political posturing.
Waitangi Tribunal ruling enshrines Treaty as a living document
OPINION: The most significant thing about the Waitangi Tribunal ruling last week that Maori did not sign away Tino Rangatiratanga in 1840 is that it has reset with immediacy the role of the Treaty into the modern day.
