Taonga tuku iho

Thank you for your enthusiastic and constructive feedback Taonga Tuku Iho on our draft Heritage Policy during the final consultation period Monday 8 March to Friday 9 April 2021.

What has happened since 1 March 2021?

Council’s Policy, Finance and Strategy Committee considered and agreed to the revised draft Heritage Policy on 27 April 2021 with some changes.

Those changes were:

  • Not including Appendix 1 as part of Taonga tuku iho – Heritage Policy until and unless it is confirmed by the District Plan review process. Councillors wanted to ensure that the community had further opportunity to submit on conservation incentives designed to support heritage building owners to protect and enhance their building/property
  • Ensuring our Heritage Policy and its use of the word ‘significant’ mirrors the requirements of the Wellington Regional Policy Statement (Policies 21 and 22) on heritage issues;
  • Further minor editorial changes.

These changes will be made in consultation with the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Policy, Finance and Strategy Committee.

Next Steps

These changes are now confirmed, the final Taonga tuku iho – Heritage Policy is now publically available.

Our District Plan heritage chapter review continues – you can find out more about this here https://haveyoursay.huttcity.govt.nz/district-plan-review

    Feedback was mainly supportive at the nine open days held in November and December on the draft Heritage Policy Review. Respondents supported the need to include archaeology and the social and storytelling elements in the policy and the council working with mana whenua to recognise their history, heritage and sites of significance.

    Comments also sought greater recognition and celebration of local heritage, and improved engagement with property owners, local experts, and community organisations on processes and incentives.

    Feedback included more explicit recognition of Pasifika identities and other new migrants in the policy. Others spoke about social connection to places and the past being important and clearer and stronger provisions for the HCC archives, some did not recognise their area as being historically significant.
