Te Piriti – Intermediate workshop. The intermediate workshop builds on the foundations set in the introductory workshop. We focus in more depth on the application of Māori values in different planning settings and explore Tiriti o Waitangi / Treaty of Waitangi through the lens of settlements.

It is important that planners understand the role of mana whenua and tangata whenua in the resource management environment and how to recognise and provide for their values. Planning for Māori Values is designed as a series of three workshops.

  • Te Tīmatanga – Introductory Workshop
  • Te Piriti – Intermediate Workshop
  • Ki Te Hoe – Advanced Workshop

In this workshop we will explore the proposed resource management reforms and impacts on Māori. This will include how technicians improve their approach to Māori engagement and offers suggested approaches to planning investigation and inquiry.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand and make provision for how Treaty Settlements impact on RMA and LGA processes and Council Decision making
  • Gain an understanding of working with Treaty Settlement legislation, statutory acknowledgements, Iwi Management Plans and CVA’s CIA’s
  • Gain an understanding of how legislation changes will impact Māori
