Iwi Hapu Resource Management Plans

A Iwi Hapu Resource Management Plan (IHMP) is a document developed and approved by hapu and/or iwi, that describes resource management issues of importance to them as Tangata Whenua.

The plans may also contain information relating to specific cultural values, historical accounts, descriptions of areas of interest (iwi/hapu boundaries/rohe) and consultation/engagement protocols for resource consents and/or plan changes.

Importance of Iwi/Hapu Resource Management Plans

IHMP planning documents provide a mechanism for tangata whenua interests to be considered in Council processes. There are specific legislative requirements which place a duty on Council staff to take these plans into account. In practice, local authorities must balance a number of competing interests, including iwi/hapu plans. The importance of HIMP planning documents is that they have been recognised by Tauranga City Council. Note that some are also funded by Council.
