Trustees are pleased to advise that 90% of the owners voted in favour of the Deed of Settlement with the Crown and the Post Settlement Governance Entity (PSGE) in the recent ratification.  A signing Ceremony with the Crown was held on Saturday 12th March at Pa Harakeke attended by her honourable Tariana Turiana, on behalf of the Minister of Treaty settlements.

Attached is a copy of the Deed of Settlement relating to the Maraeroa A and B Blocks and the Post Settlement Governance Entity  (the PSGE). Our negotiations team, supported by all of the Trustees of the Te Maru o Rereahu Trust, consider the offer as documented in the Deed of Settlement as the best that could be achieved.  We look forward to meeting with many of you again during the ceremony.   Attached below are the hui ratification venues where information hui were held to consult with owners / beneficiaries regarding the ratification items.  Thank you to all those who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the signing. The next major event will be for the document to be passed in parliament at which time, we will advise the whanau should you be interested in attending.

Na reira e te whanau, kia tau nga manaakitanga a te Runga Rawa ki runga i a koutou, me tatou katoa hoki. 

Naku noa, na
Brian Stanley
