Tātou Tirohanga


“The vision has been, since the trust was formed, to develop the land in the best interests of the beneficiaries.” – Malcolm Short, Trust chair


Tumu Kaituna 14 block is not for sale.

Since the Trust was first formed, we have aspired to develop the whenua in a way that recognises our take tupuna and the historical significance of the whenua while providing ongoing benefit for current beneficiaries and our nga uri.

We want any proposals for land development to protect places of natural significance and preserve the most unique aspects of the block’s natural environment.

We also think special places within our land should be set aside for the use of the beneficiaries to allow whānau to stay connected.
