Māori land owners have taken part in wānanga across the motu to help shape the proposed service.
Core functions of the Māori Land Service
While work is continuing on the detailed design and the delivery of the Māori Land Service, the Bill provides for a range of services to be provided through the proposed new Māori Land Service:
- Māori Land Information and Registry Services – maintaining and updating a register of Māori land owner decisions, ownership and governance information.
- Owner Decision Making Services – service to support owners in relation to their interests and effective governance and management arrangements for their land.
- Dispute Resolution Services – service to resolve disputes relating to land based on tikanga Māori.
With further work on the fourth service:
- Advisory and Development Services – advice relating to the productive use of land.
Māori Land Service Wānanga (2016-2017)
To date, more than 1,000 Māori land owners have taken part in the consultation on the Māori Land Service. The wānanga were hosted by Te Puni Kōkiri, the Māori Land Court and Land Information New Zealand (LINZ).
The purpose of the wānanga was to find out what a proposed Māori Land Service might look like and how it could best support land owners to connect, protect and grow their whenua to support their aspirations.
