Wellington City Council held its first ever council meeting at Pipitea Marae yesterday and renewed formal partnerships with local iwi Taranaki Whanui and Ngati Toa Rangatira.

Mayor Justin Lester says the Memoranda provides the framework for strategic relationships between the iwi and the council, enabling iwi to contribute to council decision making.

Councillor Jill Day, who leads the council’s Maori partnerships portfolio, says the partnerships are a way for the council to support Maori economic development.
