Dr Pita Sharples, in Committee, to move the following amendments:
To add the following new paragraph (after line 10 on page 36):
To omit subclause (1) and substitute the following subclauses (after line 7 on page 37):
(1) A deed of acknowledgement will acknowledge the particular historical, traditional, cultural or spiritual relationship of tangata whenua of the heritage area, namely Ngati Whatua and Te Kawerau A Maki, with any land in the heritage area.
To omit subclause (3)(a) and substitute the following subclause (after line 25 on page 37):
New crossheading and clause 28AA
To insert the following new crossheading and clause after clause 28 (after line 2 on page 41):
Consultation processes with tangata whenua
28AA Consultation processes with tangata whenua
In addition to any specific opportunities for contribution identified in a deed of acknowledgment under section 24(3)(d), a local authority must establish and maintain processes to provide opportunities for Ngati Whatua and Te Kawerau A Maki to contribute to the decision-making processes of the local authority in their implementation of this Act.
This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Waitakere Ranges Heritage Area Bill to solidify the requirement of consultation by the Crown or a local authority with tangata whenua, namely Ngati Whatua and Te Kawerau A Maki, in their implementation of this Act, and to ensure processes are established and maintained through which such consultation can occur.
