Maori and the Local Government Act

(Statement on the use of macrons)


E nga mana, e nga reo, e nga karangarangatanga maha, tena koutou, tena tatou katoa.

The following document is an overview of feedback from the series of workshops conducted in 2003 on Treaty of Waitangi issues and the Maori provisions in the Local Government Act 2002, the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, and the Local Electoral Act 2001.

The LG KnowHow workshops were designed to help local authorities and central government agencies to understand and implement the provisions of important legislation affecting local government. In addition to the general provisions of the legislation, there are four areas of particular relevance to Maori:
  • Consultation with Maori
  • Participation of Maori in decision making
  • Postponement of rates on Maori freehold land
  • Maori wards and constituencies.
These notes represent an overview of feedback from those who participated in the half-day workshops that focused specifically on Treaty of Waitangi issues and the Maori provisions. This is not formal advice from the Department of Internal Affairs. It is merely a sharing of information from the workshops as a record that can assist in the development of implementation strategies.
