Is Wellington Tenths Trust and Palmerston North Maori Reserves one in the same as Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust (PNBST)?
No, we are separate entities. The Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust was established in August 2008 to receive and manage the settlement package for Taranaki Whānui ki Te Upoko o Te Ika. As part of the settlement process, the Crown required that the establishment of the Trust be ratified by those registered with the Port Nicholson Block Claim in 2007. The Deed of Settlement was signed on 19 August 2008. If you need to contact PNBST please call them on 0800 767 8642, email firstname.lastname@example.org Their offices are based in the Tramways Building, 1-3 Thorndon Quay, Wellington.
