Under the Official Information Act 1982, I request the following information:

2. Internal documents or notes that discuss the fact that the Te Urewera Board or the Tuhoe people have not accessed funding available to them to maintain Te Urewera

3. An electronic copy of the statutory, contractual or otherwise legal basis on which the Te Urewera Board or the Tuhoe people have denied DOC staff access into Te Urewera to do maintenance work

4. An electronic copy of the statutory, contractual or otherwise legal basis on which the Te Urewera Board or the Tuhoe people have closed Lake Waikaremoana to the public, inhibited boat owners to access their boats, and restricted access to the public to Te Urewera as a whole

5. An electronic copy of internal DOC documents that assess our outline whether the Te Urewera Board or the Tuhoe people have breached their statutory, contractual or otherwise legal obligations in blocking public access to Lake Waikaremoana and Te Urewera as a whole

Yours faithfully,
