Toitū Te Whenua manages properties on behalf of the Crown and client agencies. These properties include former prisons, hospitals and schools, as well as residential and commercial properties.
Some of the properties we manage are earmarked for Treaty settlement. In some cases, part of our role in preparing a property for Treaty settlement can include:
- clearing infrastructure
- remediating the land
- managing contaminants in the soil
- mitigating hazards on site.

We are managing the site of the former Barrett Street hospital in central New Plymouth on behalf of the Crown.

Former Tokanui Psychiatric Hospital
We are responsible for overseeing the demolition and disposal of the former Tokanui Psychiatric Hospital, south of Te Awamutu.
Toitū Te Whenua is leading a programme of work to establish a reserve at Watts Peninsula – a culturally and historically significant area located near the entrance to Wellington Harbour.
Toitū Te Whenua is committed to ensuring that any work undertaken on Crown land is as safe as possible.
We are responsible for managing Watts Peninsula on behalf of the Crown. We have a range of measures in place to minimise hazards on the site as it is popular destination for recreation.
We have policy and procedures for management of asbestos-containing materials at our properties, and carry out a range of hazard reduction work.
