An Act to empower the Auckland City Council to dispose of certain reserves of which it is the owner and administrator

  • Whereas the Auckland City Council (hereinafter called the Council) is the freehold owner and administrator of the several reserves described in the Schedule hereto, all of which lie outside its district: And whereas those reserves have been acquired by the Council in some cases by way of gift or bequest subject to certain trusts, in some cases by purchase from the then owners, and in others by acquisition from the Crown: And whereas the Council desires to divest itself of the ownership and administration of those reserves, primarily on the grounds that they either serve the regional community, or are within the sphere of influence of another territorial authority (as defined in the Local Government Act 1974): And whereas some of the land comprised in those reserves was acquired by the Council from the Crown and in consequence the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977 and of the Auckland Regional Authority Act 1963 would prohibit their transfer by the Council direct either to the Auckland Regional Authority or to another territorial authority: And whereas, in the case of reserve land not acquired from the Crown, the Council lacks the power to transfer it direct to another territorial authority except by following the guidelines in Part 14 of the Local Government Act 1974, which are inappropriate in the circumstances: And whereas it is expedient that each of those reserves should be confirmed as a reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977 and that the Council should be empowered to transfer direct to the Auckland Regional Authority or to a territorial authority such of those reserves as the transferee might be agreeable to accept subject to such terms and conditions attaching to the transfer as were mutually agreed upon:
