An Act to authorise the Auckland Regional Authority to reclaim from the sea certain tidal land in the Manukau Harbour

  • Preamble

    Whereas the Manukau Harbour Act 1911 vested certain tidal land in the Manukau Harbour in the Auckland Harbour Board: And whereas the tidal land includes the land more particularly described in the Schedule to this Act: And whereas on the 23rd day of March 1971 the Board adopted a policy to defer consideration of all applications for the disposal of refuse by tipping in the Manukau Harbour pending the completion of a planning study of the harbour: And whereas the Auckland Regional Authority subsequently requested the Board to promote a special Act pursuant to section 175 of the Harbours Act 1950 to authorise the Authority to reclaim certain tidal land in the Manukau Harbour known as Pikes Point East for the purpose of disposing of refuse: And whereas the Local Government Commission charged the Authority with responsibility for waste disposal in the Auckland metropolitan area and surrounds: And whereas the Authority advised the Board that it would be introducing a solid waste disposal system utilising pulverisation techniques but that this system would not be operative before March 1978: And whereas the Authority advised the Board that there was a need to continue to dispose of refuse by way of reclamation at Pikes Point East pending the introduction of the pulverisation disposal system: And whereas the Authority advised the Board that it had investigated all practicable alternative means of disposing of the refuse and that there was no practicable alternative means of doing so pending the commencement of the pulverisation disposal system: And whereas the Board considered that it was not appropriate for it to determine these matters but that it was desirable for the Authority to be provided with the opportunity to do so: And whereas under the Standing Orders of the House of Representatives any Local Bill is referred to the Local Bills Committee after its first reading for that Committee (inter alia) to report when necessary upon the merits of the Bill and to recommend such amendments as it thinks proper: And whereas the Authority also advised the Board that the construction of the reclamation for the purpose of disposing of refuse is of the utmost urgency: And whereas the Board agreed to promote a special Act authorising the reclamation for the purpose of disposing of refuse thereby providing the Authority with the opportunity to establish that there is a need for the reclamation for the purpose of disposing of such refuse and that there are no practicable alternative means of disposing of such refuse pending the commencement of the pulverisation disposal system:
