The Combined Tāngata Whenua Forum(CTWF) provides a regional forum for hapu, Iwi and Maori with membership comprising of the Tauranga Moana Tangata Whenua Collective (TCC) and iwi/hapu members of Partnership Forums. The CTWF meet at least six times a calendar year, generally on a bi-monthly basis. The values and aspirations of tangata whenua are embedded in SmartGrowth's strategies, policies and work programmes. The Combined Tāngata Whenua Forum has been the key to the engagement and participation of Maori at the governance level of SmartGrowth.
