Statutory, Cultural & Sensitive Areas


Statutory Acknowledgement areas

Statutory Acknowledgement areas are listed in the Ngāti Kōata, Ngāti Rārua, Ngāti Tama ki Te Tau Ihu, and Te Ātiawa o Te Waka-a-Māui Claims Settlement Act 2014, Schedules 1 to 3, as areas of particular significant to Te Ātiawa. An applicant will need to consider whether the activity is within, or adjacent to a Statutory acknowledgment area, or whether the area could be directly affected even if the activity is outside the immediate area.

For more details of Statutory Acknowledgement areas you should contact either the head office of Te Atiawa or the delegated rohe office. You can also identify these areas using the regional council maps (Statutory Acknowledgement Areas of Te Tau Ihu) with the layer labelled ‘Te Ātiawa o Te Waka-a-Māui’.

Cultural areas

Cultural areas are identified as requiring special protection due to the presence of significant wāhi tapu (sacred places) or wāhi taonga (treasured possessions) in the area. Where activities occur in these areas, consultation with Te Atiawa is particularly important in order to identify effects of the activity and avoid, remedy or mitigate those effects. Cultural areas can be identified using the Cnat maps. Absence of a cultural area on GIS does not mean there are no wāhi tapu or wāhi taonga sites in the area. Rather, indication of an area should indicate to an application an issue of wāhi tapu or wāhi taonga.

Sensitive areas

In addition to cultural areas, locations have been identified to highlight there are cultural values that may be more sensitive to adverse effects. These areas are a guide only, but provide some more direction to likely areas of concern.
