The Future Proof initiative, being the development and implementation of a sub-regional growth strategy led by Waipa and Waikato District Councils, Hamilton City Council and Waikato Regional Council, included the establishment of a tangata whenua reference group - Nga Karu Atua o te Waka - with members drawn from Iwi and hapu-based groups representing tangata whenua in Waipa District and the wider region.
Running concurrently with Future Proof is Waipa 2050, which is now focused on the review of the Waipa District Plan.
To ensure that Māori are actively engaged throughout the review process, we consult regularly with Ngā Iwi Toopu o Waipa and have established a joint working group to ensure that the Waikato River Vision and Strategy is appropriately reflected in the District Plan.
The Waikato-Tainui Raupatu (Waikato River) Settlement Act 2010 provide further opportunities for Iwi involvement in decision-making.
The Act requires Waipa District Council and Waikato-Tainui to enter into a Joint Management Agreement (JMA) with respect to the Waikato River and activities within its catchment affecting the river.
