History of Tauhara North No.2 Trust
The block of land now governed by Tauhara North No.2 Trust under Te Ture Whanua Maori Act 1993, covers an area of 326.5000 hectares in total situated in Block XI, XII, XV & XVI Tatua Survey District and shown on ML Plan 22331.
In 1981, Ngāti Tahu Tribal Trust became involved in the management of the land that was, at this time, being leased by Landcorp. However in 1991, the trustees at the time, made the decision that Tauhara North No.2 block should be managed on its own because they could see the potential of this block. In 1992, the block of land was formally handed back to the Ngāti Tahu Tribal Trust.
In 1993, the Tauhara North No 2 Trust was formed.
Tauhara North No.2 Trust was formed to own and manage the three blocks of land known as Tauhara North 2A, Tauhara North 2B and Tauhara North 2C. The current owners are the descendants of those original persons to whom the land was granted. Registered owners comprising of individual and Whanau Trusts together, by way of their beneficial interest in the Trust, own the land. The blocks of land are within the area occupied by Ngāti Tahu, and most of the Owners are members of Ngāti Tahu.
