We will be working on a plan for all the Reservations in the upcoming months. This will take into account Whakairinga Korero, signage, heritage trail between Otanewainuku and Otawa, the corridor from Otawa to Papamoa, and pest control aspects. This plan will involve DOC as instructed by the Crown in the Deed of Settlement, participation of our koeke, and others. It will also observe the Waitaha Iwi Management plan and how those aspirations may be integrated into the long term plan for the reserves. In addition where co-management and other iwi interests occur as a matter of treaty settlements, Koeke will play a crucial role in tikanga advisory capacity. Environmental policies will be determined on the principles of Whakairnga korero so that we remain consistent throughout all environmental matters.
