A warning from Auckland’s Independent Maori Statutory Board that the Unitary Plan for the super city includes unfinished business.

Chair David Taipari says now the Auckland Council has signed off on the 6000 page document, the board is considering what legal options it has to get a schedule of Sites of Value to Maori put back in the plan.

The council accepted a recommendation of the Independent Hearings Panel that the schedule be dropped because there wasn’t enough evidence available about the sites.

But Mr Taipari says councillors should have listened to their officials, who told them that while the hearings process was going on council staff worked with mana whenua to confirm the location and significance of more than 2000 sites.

He says the importance of these sites to the history and identity of mana whenua and all Aucklanders cannot be ignored.
