  • Preamble

    Whereas part of Agricultural Section 38, Tikokino, in the County of Waipawa, has in the past been used as a cemetery:

    And whereas no interment of human remains has taken place therein for many years, and no further interments are likely to take place therein:

    And whereas the said cemetery has not been closed pursuant to the provisions of the Cemeteries Act 1908:

    And whereas the said cemetery is overgrown and it is difficult to keep the land and the headstones, monuments, and grave surrounds in a neat and tidy condition:

    And whereas it is expedient that the said cemetery should be closed and no further interment of human remains permitted therein, and that the land should be vested in the Corporation of the County as a public reserve:

    And whereas it is expedient that the said headstones, monuments, and grave surrounds should be removed and the land levelled and laid out in grass:

    And whereas it is desirable that a suitable memorial should be erected on the land:

    And whereas the County Council has no power without legislation to give effect to its wishes in respect of the land.
