This means that Hapū are at the FNDC decision table and can now work towards real solutions and options that suit Hapū.
Although Hapū recognise that this all but one step along the long journey towards restoring the mauri of our rivers, the Hapū are optimistic about this leading to real outcomes for better waste water treatment solutions for Kaikohe.
Now the hard work begins, say the Hapū, and hopes the relationship with FNDC gets better and genuine.
At this stage of the journey Hapū would like to acknowledge Hapū legal council Daniel Minhinnick from Russell McVeagh, Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi-Ō-Ngāpuhi and Far North District Council for getting to where we are now.
