Ko te Waitangi National Trust Board, ngā Mema Poari, te rōpū Whakahaere me ō mātou tāngata e hāpai ana i te mana tuku iho o tēnei wāhi hītori.
The Waitangi Treaty Grounds is part of the Waitangi National Trust Estate comprising of 506 hectares. The Waitangi National Trust was set up by an Act of Parliament to administer the estate. Its Deed of Trust, drawn up in 1932, set out the objectives for the Trust Board and the Treaty Grounds. These include priority being given to the repair and restoration of the former Residency which, at Lord Bledisloe’s request, was renamed the Treaty House.
Tae noa mai ki tēnei rā ko ngā mema o te poari he kanohi o ngā tāngata kua whai hononga tika ki tēnei pae hītori. Kei te Kāwana Tianara o te wā te motika ki te kōwhiri kia noho hei Whakaruruhau o te Tarahiti.
In 2016 the Trust Board established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Waitangi Limited, to manage the day to day operations of the Treaty Grounds and wider estate. Waitangi Limited is governed by a Chairman and directors and managed by the Chief Executive, on behalf of the Trust Board.
