This article examines lessons for spatial governance in Aotearoa New Zealand within the framework of the Treaty of Waitangi.

It presents findings from research on co-creation pathways that facilitated bicultural spatial governance involving whānau and local communities in the Waimakariri and Rotorua Districts. The research methodology was informed by local tikanga specific to these areas, aligning with three Treaty principles. While the case studies share some similarities, they also highlight unique perspectives that resonate differently across New Zealand, emphasizing the importance of co-creation in bicultural governance. The authors discuss the implications of these findings for biculturalism in various spatial contexts and for ongoing debates about decolonising governance.
