KEY PROGRAMMES

THE SCHEDULE OF ISSUES OF SIGNIFICANCE


The updated Schedule of Issues of Significance to Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau consists of two parts;
 
  1. A statutorily required schedule of important issues to Māori within the Auckland Council region which covers issues in both central and local government.  The Schedule is framed under Te Tiriti O Waitangi principles that have been derived from case law.

  2. The Māori Plan which is a 30 year strategy for improving Māori well-being in Tāmaki Makaurau.  The plan is founded upon core Māori values.  It was championed by the Board in response to research into Maori economic, environmental, social and cultural spheres in Auckland.  The plan comprises advancement action plans and includes measurement metrics to determine the rate of improvement. 
The Schedule assists us in our advocacy role and underpins all that we do.
