Pānui to owners of Maranuku B

(Māori freehold land)
(Also known as Te Karoro B – Glenomaru Blk IV Pt Sec’s 47 & 49)

We refer to the previous pānui in the March and May 2016 editions of Te Pānui Rūnaka. We advise that the application is being made to the Māori Land Court to confirm the variations Rona Williamson is seeking to her occupation order over part of Maranuku B. The first variation is an increase in size from 1200m2 to 8000m2. The proposed increase in size means the occupation order will include the current site and extend down towards the coast including the area below the roadway into Maranuku B. Secondly, Mrs Williamson is seeking an order that the occupation order can be transferred to a Whānau Trust and will last for the lifetime of the Whānau Trust. Prior to the April meeting, three objections had been received. All those present at the April meeting supported the variations that Mrs Williamson is seeking. Following the meeting, one further objection was received.

Owners had until 29 July 2016 to give their consent or objection and ask any questions. As no further objections have been received, we are now proceeding with this application. We hope to have this matter heard at the Dunedin Māori Land Court hearing scheduled for the month of November 2016.

If you have any questions, please contact Haines Ellison, Ngāi Tahu Maori Law Centre, Ph. 0800 626 745 or email [email protected] or write to Ngāi Tahu Maori Law Centre, PO Box 633, Dunedin 9054.

We are no longer dealing with the Ahu Whenua Trust. Please direct all enquiries regarding the Ahu Whenua Trust to one of the three trustees; Maureen Wylie: Peggy Peak or Rona Williamson.
