Ngāti Koata Trusts Deed Review

Ngāti Koata Trusts Deed Review

Following consultations last year, there are a number of amendments to be made to the Deeds of both the Ngāti Koata Trust and Te Pātaka a Ngāti Koata Trust. There are three Proposed Amendments that we will be voting on at the September Annual General Meeting, and two issues for Discussion.

The Proposed Amendments have been grouped into three resolutions under the following titles:

  • Tūpuna List
  • Separation of Governance & Management
  • Administrative Changes

The issues for Discussion are:

  • Whāngai
  • Trusteeship


We have prepared a booklet and will hold consultation hui to help the iwi understand the proposed changes, make submissions, and to have your say.


Please click here to see the booklet with a breakdown of the amendments.

This booklet is available here on the website, has been mailed to all registered members, is on Facebook, and will also be in the Haratua | May Issue of our Email Pānui.

In the booklet are the proposed changes, an explanation of the changes, and some questions and discussion points for the hui.
