An Act to enable the Tokoroa Agricultural and Pastoral Association to dispose of certain land in the County of Matamata and to enter into arrangements with the Matamata County Council for use of the land and the adjoining recreation reserve

  • Preamble

    Whereas the Tokoroa Agricultural and Pastoral Association (hereinafter called the Association) is registered as proprietor of an estate in fee simple in the land described in the Schedule which is situated in the Town of Tokoroa within the boundaries of the Matamata County:

    And whereas the said land was acquired by the Association on 18 June 1957 as a gift from Virginie Mossop of Tokoroa:

    And whereas for some years the Association has conducted its annual shows on the said land and also on portion of the adjoining Tokoroa Memorial Sports Ground which is constituted a reserve under the Reserves and Domains Act 1953:

    And whereas the Matamata County Council desires to develop and improve the said sports grounds for recreational, sports, and parkland purposes but it is not practicable to do so without acquiring the said land owned by the Association:

    And whereas at a general meeting of the Association held at Tokoroa on 20 July 1967 the Association requested the Council to apply for the legislative authority in this Act contained to enable the Association to transfer the said land to the Council on the condition that the Association will continue to have the use thereof and of the adjoining sports ground for a number of days each year without charge:

    And whereas the Council has agreed to pay compensation to the Association for the said land if, at any time, the Association decides to change the venue of its shows and other activities:

    And whereas the requisite authority is attainable only by legislation.

1 Short Title
  • This Act may be cited as the Tokoroa Agricultural and Pastoral Association Empowering Act 1968.

2 Transfer of land by Association
  • Notwithstanding the provisions of section 7 of the Agricultural and Pastoral Societies Act 1908 or of the rules of the Association or of any of its bylaws, the Association may (on the resolution of two-thirds of the members present at a general meeting of the Association held within 2 years of the date of the commencement of this Act), without charge, transfer the freehold of the said land, and all the improvements of the Association thereon, free of all encumbrances and charges, to the Chairman, Councillors, and Inhabitants of the County of Matamata (in this Act called the Council).

3 Creation of recreation reserve
  • Upon completion of the transfer by the Association of the said land to the Council, the said land shall forthwith become a recreation reserve within the meaning of the Reserves and Domains Act 1953.

4 Use of reserves by Association for shows, etc
  • The Council is hereby authorised to and shall, provided it receives not less than 2 months notice each year in that regard, grant to the Association the exclusive use, free of charge in all respects, for 6 days in each year after the commencement of this Act, for any of the purposes of the Association, the said land and all such portions and facilities of the adjoining sports ground as shall be reasonably required by the Association. In addition the Association shall be entitled to access to the grounds for a reasonable number of days before and after the annual shows of the Association for the purposes of preparation for and termination of the shows.

5 Nomination of member to controlling committee
  • From the date of the transfer of the said land to the Council as aforesaid the Association shall be entitled each year to nominate one of its members to the committee or organisation of the Council for the time concerned with the management or control of the said Tokoroa Memorial Sports Ground.

6 Financial arrangements if Association changes venue of shows, etc
  • (1) In the event of the Association deciding at any time to hold future shows and other activities of the Association on premises other than the said land or the sports ground adjoining the same, the Association shall give notice in writing in that regard to the Council, and it shall thereupon become entitled to receive from the Council and the Council may pay, compensation for the said land on the basis of the market value thereof at the date of the notice to the Council including the value of all permanent improvements effected by the Association on the said land with the consent of the Council after the date of the transfer of the said land as aforesaid, but excluding the value of any improvements effected after the last-mentioned date by the Council or by any person or organisation (other than the Association).

For the purposes of any such arbitration this section shall be deemed to be a submission within the meaning of the Arbitration Act 1908, and the relevant provisions of that Act shall apply to any such arbitration.

    (3) From the date of the notice referred to in subsection (1) the rights of the Association contained in section 4 shall cease and determine, except that, for a period of not more than 3 years after the date of the notice, the Association shall be entitled to continue to use the said land and all such portions and facilities of the adjoining sports ground as shall be reasonably required by the Association for 6 days in each year, subject to payment by the Association of such reasonable rental as shall be fixed by the Council.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Tokoroa Agricultural and Pastoral Association Empowering Act 1968. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the Act as at 6 September 1968, as specified in the list of amendments at the end of these notes.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that contain transitional, savings, or application provisions that cannot be compiled in the reprint are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order. For more information, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/reprints/ .

2 Status of reprints
  • Under section 16D of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption applies even though editorial changes authorised by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have been made in the reprint.

    This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the principal enactment and its amendments are contained.

3 How reprints are prepared
  • A number of editorial conventions are followed in the preparation of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/editorial-conventions/ or Part 8 of the Tables of New Zealand Acts and Ordinances and Statutory Regulations and Deemed Regulations in Force.

4 Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
  • Section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set out in sections 17D and 17E of that Act so that, to the extent permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.

    A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000. Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since 1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legislation reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of the reprint.

    In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the authority of section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

    • omission of unnecessary referential words (such as of this section and of this Act)

    • typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5 point)

    • layout of provisions, including:

      • indentation

      • position of section headings (eg, the number and heading now appear above the section)

    • format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appears in bold type, without quotation marks)

    • format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as the 1st day of January 1999 is now expressed as 1 January 1999)

    • position of the date of assent (it now appears on the front page of each Act)

    • punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions)

    • Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced with arabic numerals, and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • case and appearance of letters and words, including:

      • format of headings (eg, headings where each word formerly appeared with an initial capital letter followed by small capital letters are amended so that the heading appears in bold, with only the first word (and any proper nouns) appearing with an initial capital letter)

      • small capital letters in section and subsection references are now capital letters

    • schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces First Schedule), and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • running heads (the information that appears at the top of each page)

    • format of two-column schedules of consequential amendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they are rearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chronological).
