HISTORY OF ROTOITI 15
Rotoiti 15 was formed following a request from the Crown for more land to be added to the Okataina Scenic reserve. A request was made and agreed to, by the owners, for various portions of the lands to be included in a block called Okataina 12, along with Part Rotoiti 14 (Crown block). This exchange demonstrates our forbearer’s commitment to environmental sustainability and maintaining land ownership for economic growth. The exchange of Okataina 12 and Part of Rotoiti 14 for equal sized land areas (Ruawahia X and Matahina X) enabled the Trust to maintain land’s for economic benefit whilst also contributing to the environmental sustainability of our rohe.
