Frances Hancock and Tim McCreanor: Govt needs to intervene against housing at Ihumātao
Ed: I have posted a lot of the SOUL stories but this one merits a comment. The archaeological provisions of HNZPTA are being invoked here to try to protect a landscape when the issue is basically not one of protecting archaeological sites but one of a contested potential heritage landscape, or in reality an extension to an historic landscape that is already protected in considerable part. It is unreasonable to condemn the archaeological provisions because they do not achieve that.. The RMA has provisions for outstanding landscapes but they have a long history of being difficult to use and of being difficult to define. While there is some movement to extending them to include historic values we are a long way from achieving that. Under the Heritage NZ legislation the Historic Area and Wahi Tapu Area classifications confer status but no protection. That weakness may be a place to start - but it does little for the current issue.
