The Tūpuna Maunga Authority has issued a call for public submissions on the proposed amendment to its award-winning 2016 Integrated Management Plan.
The new section details proposed ecological restoration projects (including planting native species and removing non-native trees) for:
- Ōwairaka / Te Ahi Kā a Rakataura / Mt Albert (the Ōwairaka project)
- Pukewīwī / Puketāpapa / Mount Roskill
- Ōtāhuhu / Mount Richmond
- Te Tātua a Riukiuta / Great King
This follows the recent Court of Appeal decision which upheld the substance of the Authority’s contested plan, but created new law as to the judicial process. This jurisprudence did not exist when the 13 tribes of the Tāmaki Collective agreed in 2012 on the legal regime governing the administration of the Tūpuna Maunga.
The Authority remains pleased that the courts have recognized that the Reserves Act legislation must be read in the context of the treaty settlement (Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau Collective Redress Act 2014).
How to submit and find the proposed amendment to the Integrated Management Plan can be found on the Tūpuna Maunga Authority website, https://maunga.nz/plans-policies-and-procedures/. Submissions must be received by 5:00 p.m., Saturday, October 8, 2022.
