26 October 2011

Application for the creation of a Māori reservation dismissed. The proposed beneficiary was the Gibbs whānau. The applicants were not tangata whenua and while the application was supported by some hapū, it was forcefully opposed by Ngāti Tama. The application may have succeeded if the beneficiaries were local iwi and hapū.
