What is the Trust?
The Tumu Kaituna 14 (TK14) Trust is an Ahuwhenua Trust established in 1973. The Tumu Kaituna 14 Māori land block used to be managed by the Māori Trustee, with advice from Advisory Trustees who represented the beneficiaries (beneficial owners). It was transferred to individual trustees in 1990 and we were confirmed by the Māori Land Court to act on behalf of all beneficiaries.
When the Trust was established, our stated purpose was to develop the land to provide long-term benefits for our people. Since that time, we have been working on ways to improve our land for generations to come.
Our whenua is not for sale, but we want to make sure it provides benefits for us all.
You can read all about the potential development options, planning, our guiding principles on our blog. We have also published video of the engagement huis with presentations and Q&As from our owners.
We are constantly updating these resources for you.
