Kia tū, kia mataara
A priority for the rūnanga is to ensure opportunities, arising from the bypass agreements with Waka Kotahi, are identified and realised.
A suite of work on Ngā Kirimana (the agreements) is underway to prepare Ngāti Tama for Te Ara o Te Ata’s ongoing environmental work and the lead up to and during construction. This work will help to position and prepare us for many of the opportunities offered by the agreements.
The work is being done collaboratively and involves engaging with members. This includes our Kaunihera Kaumatua and our affiliate trust, Tiaki te Mauri o Parininihi. As appropriate we are also talking to other local iwi, councils and community groups, and other government agencies.
