The hapu cluster management arrangements, and the hapu that each represents, will formally exercise the rights and instruments provided for in the amended Deed. These are to be listed in the Deed. This is a change from the original Deed, which provided a period for these to be established.

Nga hapu o Ngati Porou have established six trusts, referred to as management arrangements, to exercise the rights and responsibilities of nga hapu under the amended Deed, the instruments, and the legislation.

The Crown requires that the management arrangements:

  • are appropriate to exercise those rights and responsibilities;
  • have structures that provide for:
    • representation of, and accountability to, members of nga hapu o Ngati Porou (including recognised customary marine title hapu); and
    • transparent decision-making and dispute resolution processes;
    • have been ratified by nga hapu o Ngati Porou in the present ratification process;
    • provide for each of nga hapu o Ngati Porou to be the effective decision makers in relation to their respective interests in nga rohe moana under the amended Deed, instruments, and legislation.

The management arrangements are as follows:

For the area from Potikirua to Whangaokeno, the trustees of the Potikirua ki Whangaokena Takutai Kaitiaki Trust representing Te Whanau a Tapaeururangi, Te Whanau a Tuwhakairiora, Te Whanau a Te Aotaki, Te Whanau a Kahu, Ngai Tamakoro, Ngai Tuere, Te Whanau a Te Aopare, Te Whanau a Hinerupe, Te Whanau a Te Aotaihi, Te Whanau a Hunaara, Te Whanau a Tarahauiti.

The rights and responsibilities of nga hapu o Ngati Porou under the amended Deed will be exercised by the relevant management arrangement. Where an agency is required to deal with nga hapu o Ngati Porou, the agency must deal with the relevant management arrangement.

    Any hapu that is not a party to the amended Deed is not bound by it. Such a hapu may become a party by notifying, to the relevant Minister, which of the above trusts will represent that hapu. The hapu may then be added to the relevant management arrangement by Order in Council. Other changes to the management arrangements may also be made by Order in Council, provided the Crown is satisfied that the requirements of the amended Deed will continue to be met.
Copies of the trust deeds for each of the management arr angements are available by emailing takutaimoana@tronp.org.nz.

Implementation Funding

To assist nga hapu o Ngati Porou to exercise their rights and perform their obligations under the amended Deed and the legislation, the Crown has agreed to pay, to the account of the management arrangements or their nominated entity or entities, on behalf of nga hapu o Ngati Porou, the sum of $15,530,000. The Crown has agreed to a capitalisation of the implementation funding (ie, will pay a lump sum), rather than incremental payment as was provided for in the original Deed.
