NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 16/12/2016

The government has signed a Treaty of Waitangi settlement in principle with Te Akitai Waiohua to settle its historical claims.

Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson says it provides a firm basis on which to develop a detailed deed of settlement.

The settlement package includes financial and commercial redress worth $9 million and the opportunity to buy more than 10ha of land in Manukau which will be developed for housing.

The iwi has interests centred around south Auckland and across the greater Auckland region.
