The Trust also updates owners as to the current status of negotiations concerning the lease of the aggregation land.
• The existing lessee (Constellation) decided that it would not renew its lease, which ended on 31 May 2021.
• Trustees have agreed that a short term lease (1-2 years) is appropriate to allow time for full engagement with owners about long-term use of the Trust land, and to allow time for those who wish to take their lands out of the aggregation to progress that.
• Trustees have the authority to make this decision to strike an appropriate balance between continuity of income for all owners, and allowing time for different land uses in the future to be investigated.
• There have been injunctions filed in the Māori Land Court which is unfortunate. The Trustees seek resolution without litigation, and have given this assurance that no long-term lease will be entered into without providing owners the opportunity to be consulted.
