Alarm bells at Maori consent rules

Alarm is growing about proposed rules in the Auckland Unitary Plan for cultural impact assessments.

Labour Maori Affairs spokesperson Shane Jones says the Auckland Council seems to want to turn the 19 iwi in the super city into consent authorities,

He says as someone who was part of the core group that wrote the Resource Management Act 24 years ago, that’s not what was in mind.

The plan identifies 3600 sites of value to mana whenua that will require assessments from iwi, adding to compliance costs.

Employers and Manufacturers Association chief executive Kim Campbell says the rules look rushed and half-baked, and need to be withdrawn and reworked from first principles.

He says the scope for assessments is so broad and ill-defined it could mean every resource consent requires one.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology
The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.
National's new draconian Oranga Tamariki welfare reforms are anti-Māori, anti-women and anti-human

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
