The Ministry of Justice is conducting a project to improve access to Maori land information, commencing in the Te Tai Tokerau region.

Initially, it will lead to the registration of the 57,000 Maori Land Court orders which are presently outstanding.  A second phase will be the integration of Maori land titles – other than historical information such as whakapapa – into the LINZ computer system, enabling accurate block descriptions and guaranteed title searches.
