The Trust is in a position to take on the responsibility of the partnering agreement with the Department of Internal Affairs and independently focus on its core business of community-led development within our four settlements (with the locals, for the locals and by the locals).

  • Request made to Te Rūnanga o Tamaūpoko, 10 October 2018.


We are very aware of staying clear of rūnanga, hapū and marae matters. It is our hope that Te Rūnanga o Tamaūpoko will continue to support our endeavours and we will always be available, if required to lend a helping hand.

TCLT also acknowledges the Department of Internal Affairs for selecting us as one of its five founding partners and the evolving relationship with the CLDP leadership panel and management team.
