Ngati Huri Whenua Topu Trust

The Ngati Huri Whenua Topu Trust exists to make the dream of whanau coming home to live and work a reality. Ngati Huri Whenua Topu Trust operates under a Trust Deed, having five Trustees gathered from the five key family lines of the haapu. Ngati Huri Whenua Topu Trust are on a journey to develop a Papakainga on the whenua surrounding the Pikitu Marae Reservation.

Pikitu Marae and the Ngati Huri Whenua Topu Trust have worked over the past five years to make this dream a reality for whanau and hapu.
The building of a new wharekai, establishment of an Ahu Whenua Trust, building of a new wharemoe and the commissioning of a Feasibility Study, Conservation and Maintenance Report are evidence of the commitment from whanau and Trustees to work together to progress this development. We acknowledge the support of agencies and organisations such as Waotu Lands Trust, Mangaorua Land Trust, Te Puni Kokiri, Lottery Marae Heritage, Community Employment Group, Housing NZ and Trust Waikato. It encourages us that Housing NZ, Trust Waikato, MSD and Te Puni Kokiri have pledged continuing support for our project.

Our Business Plan for the 2007-2009 period is currently under review and is expected to be completed by June 2009. This plan will outline the planned pathway to achieve our objectives over the 2010-2012 period.
