    This draft document has been developed through a partnership between the Eastside hapū, Tatau Pounamu Collective and Rotorua Lakes Council.

    Eastside Hapū

    Ngāti Uenukukōpako, Ngāti Te Roro o te Rangi, Ngāti Hurungaterangi and Ngāti Hinemihi have cultural, spiritual, historical and traditional association with the Eastside area. These four hapū have contributed and collaborated on the Eastside Structure Wellness Plan

    Tatau Pounamu Collective

    Tatau Pounamu is a community collective with the vision for Eastside Rotorua to be a safe place where every tamaiti (child) reaches their potential. The meaning of Tatau Pounamu reflects this as a metaphor for a safe place. Historically, Tatau Pounamu was a space created during Māori battle to provide a safe haven for the injured. More on the Tatau Pounamu Collective here.

    Rotorua Lakes Council

    The Vision for Rotorua is “Together we can - and do - make a difference. Tatau tatau - We together”. The Rotorua Way focuses on what makes Rotorua special – the district’s active environment, the strong Te Arawa culture and manaakitanga, the fantastic lifestyle and the diverse economic opportunities that exist here. Together, these make Rotorua a unique place in which to live, work, invest and to visit. The Key Moves and Actions in this document provide direction on ‘how’ this Vision can be achieved in Eastside.

    The Eastside area referred to in this Plan is bounded by four key landmarks recognised by the four hapū groups.

    These landmarks are as follows:

    • On the lake side from Te Papa-a-Ruamoa to Matawera.
    • The area is also bound to the East by the Whakapoungakau ridge line extending from Manawa to Pukepoto.

    It is acknowledged that the rohe (geographical area) of the four hapū groups extends beyond the area referred to as the ‘Eastside’ in this plan.

    A map of the area referred to in the Plan is here.
