Consulting Iwi for Resource Consents
Rangitāne o Tamaki nui-ā-Rua and Ngāti Kahungunu ki Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua are the iwi of the Tararua District. Consultation with both iwi prior to lodging your resource consent is one way to help ensure it is processed efficiently.
Rangitāne o Tamaki nui-ā-Rua have a statutory acknowledgement in place which includes Manawatu River and Akitio River and their tributaries. Council must have regard to this statutory acknowledgement when considering whether there are any affected persons when processing a resource consent application.
A statutory acknowledgement to Ngāti Kahungunu ki Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua is expected in the near future. However, the whole of the Tararua District is part of Ngāti Kahungunu ki Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua’s rohe (tribal area) so Council also considers effects on Ngāti Kahungunu ki Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua as part of processing resource consents.
For applications involving earthworks or quarrying it is strongly recommended that you consult both iwi prior to lodging your application with Council.
Early consultation with both iwi prior to lodging a resource consent application is therefore imperative to help ensure efficient processing of your application.
The appropriate members of both iwi to consult with are:

Ngāti Kahungunu ki Tāmaki-nui-a-Rua:

These documents attach to, but are not part of, the Tararua District Plan. They exist for the purpose of providing public information only. They are subject to the provisions of Schedule 1 to the Resource Management Act 1991. The statutory acknowledgement information contained within these documents cannot therefore be submitted upon.
