Patuharakeke Te Iwi Trust Board aim to set up a self sustaining Resource Management Unit in the near future.
At present much of the resource management work revolves around responding to resource consent applications and making submissions on local council or other government agency (eg. Department of Conservation, Ministry of Primary Industries) policy and plans.
The Board also has relationships and provides advice to a number of local industry players and developers (such as Refining NZ and Northport as well as local government and agencies). Key activities include carrying out Cultural Impact Assessments and cultural monitoring of heritage sites, mahinga kai and other sites of significance.
Many whanau and friends have contributed to this website but we would especially like to acknowledge Gilbert Paki, Harry Midwood, Guy Gudex and Paraire Pirihi for providing some of the historical context; David Milner for providing photos and maps, Kieran Connellan for his photos (see www.flickr.com/photos/mrhappy8); Terenga Paraoa Marae Komiti and Te Warihi Hetaraka for allowing use of the kowhaiwhai pattern; Juliane Chetham for ongoing maintenance of the site; and finally Big Fish Creative for pulling it all together.
