This section focuses on Auckland Council’s Independent Māori Statutory Board:
The IMSB was established through the Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009.
It promotes issues of significance for Tāmaki Makaurau mana whenua and mataawaka and ensures council compliance with statutory provisions referring to Te Tiriti o Waitangi Treaty of Waitangi.
The IMSB produced the Māori Plan, a 30-year document that describes how the board will achieve improvements on issues of significance. For further information on the Māori Plan, see the What is The Māori Plan for Tāmaki Makaurau? video.
