Presentation on the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority and the Integrated Management Plan

 

File No.: CP2015/13823

 

Purpose

1.       To update the Heritage Advisory Panel on the background to, statutory purpose and objectives of the Maunga Authority and the development of an Integrated Management Plan for the Tūpuna Maunga of Tāmaki Makaurau.

Executive Summary

2.       The Tūpuna Maunga (ancestral mountains) in Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland represent some of the most significant cultural, historical and geological landscapes in the region. They are sacred to Mana Whenua as taonga tuku iho (treasures handed down the generations). Local communities also have a strong emotional connection with, and draw a sense of identity from, the Tūpuna Maunga.

3.       Treaty of Waitangi settlement legislation passed in 2014 returned 14 Tūpuna Maunga to Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau and established the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority (Maunga Authority) – a co-governance entity that administers the Tūpuna Maunga. The  Maunga Authority is exploring how we value, restore, protect and manage the Tūpuna Maunga in the future with the development of a single integrated management plan. The Integrated Management Plan will replace all former legacy management plans for the individual Tūpuna Maunga.

Recommendation/s

That the Heritage Advisory Panel:

a)      receive the presentation on the Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority and the Integrated Management Plan.

b)      thank Justine Smith (Lead Officer, Tūpuna Maunga o Tāmaki Makaurau Authority) for her presentation.
