Te Urewera Board has invited public submissions on its draft Te Kawa o Te Urewera (Te Kawa). The closing date for submissions is 20 July 2017.
Te Urewera Board has invited public submissions on its draft Te Kawa o Te Urewera (Te Kawa), which presents a new way to understand the relationship between people and Te Urewera and places respect for and interdependence with nature at its centre.
In 2014 Te Urewera Act established Te Urewera as an independent legal identity, essentially meaning the area of Te Urewera (formerly Te Urewera National Park) owns itself. Te Urewera Board speaks for and represents Te Urewera, and day to day management is shared between Tūhoe and the Department of Conservation. Te Kawa sets out the principles that will guide the setting of annual priorities statements and operational management plans under Te Urewera Act, as well as decisions by the Board about activities within Te Urewera.
The draft Te Kawa o Te Urewera can be viewed here. The closing date for submissions is 20 July 2017.
This event is organised by Te Kawa o Te Uruwera.
