About the forum

The Rangitaiki River Forum was formed in May 2012 by law to protect and enhance the mauri (life-giving capacity) of the Rangitaiki River and its tributaries.

The Forum is a partnership made up of representatives from Ngati Whare, Ngati Manawa, Ngati Awa, Hineuru,Ngati Tuwharetoa (Bay of Plenty), as well as elected members from Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Taupo District Council and Whakatane District Council.

These partners are working together to set the direction of how we look after the Rangitaiki River.

The treaty settlements of Ngati Whare and Ngati Manawa created two pieces of legislation:

These Acts of Parliament established the Rangitaiki River Forum. 

For any enquiries about the Forum's work, please contact the Rangitaiki Forum Strategic Advisor on 0800 884 880 or rangitaiki@boprc.govt.nz.
