From 2020 to 2022, HTST completed a two-phase constitutional evaluation of their Deed of Trust. The Trustees considered and accepted the majority of the recommendations from this process.
Three significant changes and a number of minor changes were proposed.
Pursuant to Clause 7.4 , Fourth Schedule of our Deed of Trust. Notice is hereby given that the results of the Heretaunga Tamatea Settlement Trust, Deed of Trust Special Resolution Poll. Held between Wednesday 17 May 2023, and 12 noon on Wednesday 14 June 2023 as follows:
Vote Percentage %
Therefore, the special resolution has been passed.
Please refer below for further information/documentation.
These are the main changes in which we are trying to implement within our new Deed of Trust:
A Change of Name
A change of name was recommended to better describe the Trust and the whānau we represent.
Most Trust members whakapapa to multiple Marae, therefore they will now be eligible to register and vote for all maras they whakapapa to. This will be implemented by 2026 at the completion of re-registering all of our Trust-Membership.
Tri-Annual Trustee Elections
Shifting to a single set of Trustee elections once every three years. This will be implemented for the commencement of the 2023 Elections process.
Other minor amendments can be viewed in the 'Trust Deed Changes Narrative Booklet' available below.
