Engaging with Māori
If you want to make an application, first make sure you have spoken to all the right people and consider how your plans might impact iwi every step of the way.
It's important for people to engage with Māori at the start of an application. We can help you get on the right path.
Anyone planning to submit an application or proposal to the EPA must engage with Māori groups whose interests could be affected by the application.
Successful engagement is about developing relationships with iwi – and building and maintaining these long term.
