Vision Statement

Traditional Values

The following principles guide the Arapae Trust today and into the future. These principles will never be compromised in the name of development or in our quest to meet the strategic objectives of this plan.

Whenua

Land is the backbone of Maori. We acknowledge the importance it has played in shaping the Arapae Trust to where it is today. The Arapae Trust will never willingly enter into any type of development that has the potential to cause harm to the whenua, our resources or our people.

Kaitiakitanga

We acknowledge that we are merely caretakers of the land and will never sacrifice the health of the land and resources whatsoever. Kaitiakitanga is an important philosophy that will always be at the fore front of land use today and any development in the future.

Manaakitanga

The ability and responsibility to embrace and to value. The Trust will work towards embracing and valuing those who we have relationships, both old and new and any yet to be forged.

Aroha

To be caring and sincere.

Whakapono

To be honest, loyal and to act with integrity.

Tumanako

To adopt a strong, positive proactive approach.

Our Goals

In 2005 the Arapae Trust engaged KCSM Consultancy Limited to undertake a Land Development Specialist Mentoring Report funded by Te Puni Kokiri.  The report recommended that the trustees carry out a strategic planning review as a starting point for the implementation of a strategic plan.
