Tangata whenua brought in to Tauranga growth plan
A Tauranga Moana iwi representative says having tangata whenua at the table will be critical to the success of a new urban growth partnership for the western Bay of Plenty.
The partnership involves the crown joining the existing SmartGrowth partnership between local government, iwi and community leaders.
Buddy Mikaere says he welcomes the Government’s commitment to working alongside iwi when planning for growth, urban development and transport systems.
Minister for Urban Development Phil Twyford says cabinet recognises the importance of Government working side by side with local councils and tangata whenua.
