This overlay recognises the unique legal and governance framework for land subject to Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993, (‘Maori land’). It identifies Maori land in Auckland, enables minor development and provides for an integrated Maori land development plan to enable a range of activities on Maori land. The overlay provides a basis for better coordination between landowners, the Maori Land Court and the council in managing the resource of Maori land.
The overlay applies to Maori land subject to Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993. Where the underlying zone is the Maori Purpose zone, the provisions of this overlay do not apply.
