  • Preamble

    WHEREAS by the Schedule to The Gisborne Harbour Board Act 1882 [Repealed], the foreshore was defined as including the bed of the Turanganui River and portions of the beds of the Taruheru and Waimata Rivers and Waikanae and Kopuawhakapata Creeks, but in the Crown grant subsequently issued to the Board only the land between high- and low-water marks was included therein, and not the aforesaid beds: And whereas by The Gisborne Harbour Board Amendment Act 1920, certain lands partly covered by the sea were vested in the Board, but by reason of errors in the Schedule to the said Act disclosed by survey it has not been possible to have a title issued: And whereas the lands mentioned in the Schedule hereto comprise all the aforesaid river-beds and lands partly covered by the sea: And whereas it is expedient that one comprehensive title for the same should be issued in the name of the Gisborne Harbour Board:

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED by the General Assembly of New Zealand in Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

1 Short Title
  • This Act may be cited as the Gisborne Harbour Board Amendment Act 1929, and shall be deemed to be a special Act within the meaning of The Harbours Act 1923.

  • (1) On the passing of this Act the lands described in the Schedule hereto shall vest in and be the property of the Gisborne Harbour Board as an estate in fee-simple as an endowment subject to the provisions of The Gisborne Harbour Act 1905.

    (2) The Schedule to this Act is in substitution for Schedule 2 to the Gisborne Harbour Act 1905, and the Schedule to The Gisborne Harbour Board Amendment Act 1920, and those Schedules are accordingly hereby repealed.

    (3) The District Land Registrar for the Land Registration District of Gisborne shall, on the surrender of any Crown grant or other certificate of title heretofore granted to the Board in respect of any of the land hereby vested in it, issue to the Board a certificate of title in respect of such last-mentioned land.

    (4) Notwithstanding any powers of leasing conferred by The Gisborne Harbour Act 1905, the Board shall not, in respect of any lands hereby vested in it, exercise any powers of leasing foreshore lands or lands being part of the bed of any river or the bed of the sea except pursuant to the provisions of The Harbours Act 1923, and subject to the conditions therein imposed.
