The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
stated outcome the Council aims to achieve is that public effect is given to
the spirit of the Treaty of Waitangi. A key way towards achieving this aim is
for the Council and Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga through the MOU to continue to
build their relationship.
Each year in the Council’s published
Annual Report is a disclosure which summarises the actions taken by the Council
to give effect to these outcomes.
The Council also has important
relationships with the Trustees and descendant land owners of various areas in
the District reserved for Māori, stretching back to the 1840s, but a small
fraction of the original extent of land held by Māori. This includes land in a
number of Māori Reserves, the most significant being MR873 which encompasses
around 1,000 hectares between Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Woodend. Dialogue and
cooperation with the Trustees of the Marae at Tuahiwi, the Kaiapoi Pa Trustees
and the Trustees of the Fenton Reserve and Entitlements at the Ashley-Rakahuri
river estuary is important to the Council.
The Council also has a significant
partnering relationship with Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu. This arises in particular
from working together as part of implementing the Greater Christchurch Urban
Development Strategy (UDS) and now the Resilient Greater Christchurch Plan.
The significance of these documents and
the collaborative actions they mandate to improve the wellbeing of Greater
Christchurch has grown measurably from the joint efforts since 2010 to recover
from the effects of the Canterbury Earthquakes.
