Tēnā koe e te Rangatira.
From an initial hui held on Friday 24 August at the Western BoP District Council office hui we have developed three Mauri Monitoring survey questions that we wish to use as a basis for a conversation with members of iwi groups involved in the Kaituna River Re-diversion project, including individuals who wish to be involved in the Mauri Monitoring online survey.
We would like to ask you to respond to the following three open-ended questions:
Question 1: What are your views about the mauri of the Kaituna River, Te Awa o Ngātoroirangi and the Maketu Estuary?
Question 2: What specific areas and activities are significant to your mauri within the Kaituna Re-diversion area?
Question 3: What are the likely impacts on your mauri and the mauri of the Kaituna River, Te Awa o Ngātoroirangi and the Maketu Estuary over time?
To enable us to gather as wide a response as possible to these questions, we would like to:
- 1. Talk to you individually. To do that, please respond to this email with a suggested time and place to talk to you.
- 2. Meet you with iwi representatives to discuss the questions. We would like this to take place before the last week of November if possible. We can attend a hui already planned or support a hui specifically for this purpose.
In both instances we would, of course, like listen to and record the conversations, which will enable us to proceed with establishing the baseline Mauri Monitoring Indicators
- 3. Invite you to answer the three questions via the on-line survey link: https://goo.gl/forms/o6cmEztVh5Hzk4Xh1
- Please note that are the three questions are the same as the above but framed more tightly to enable better analysis.
Please address all responses to:
