22 Authorizing the abolition of the New River Harbour Board and vesting certain land the property of that Board in the Corporation of the City of Invercargill
  • Whereas, pursuant to the authority of the New River Harbour Board Ordinance 1874 and subsequent enactments, the land firstly, secondly, and thirdly described in the Schedule of this Act was vested in the Mayor, Councillors, and Citizens of the City of Invercargill (in this section referred to as the Corporation) upon trust as an endowment for the New River Harbour:

    And whereas for many years the Corporation has been the Harbour Board for the New River Harbour and has expended substantial sums of money on the development and reclamation for farming and commercial purposes of certain portions of the said land:

    And whereas portions of the said land are leased by the Corporation to the Crown and to various other persons:

    And whereas the revenue from the said land credited to the Harbour Fund has for many years now been insufficient to meet the cost of this reclamation and development work and the General Account of the Corporation has been drawn upon to meet the deficiency:

    And whereas this endowment land has been used and developed more for municipal purposes than for harbour purposes:

    And whereas the harbour has not been used for commercial shipping for over 20 years and it would be impracticable and uneconomic to develop it as a commercial harbour and a Harbour Board is no longer required to control it:

    And whereas it is desirable that the Harbour Board for the New River Harbour be abolished and that the status of the land firstly and thirdly described in the Schedule be altered and the land be revested in the Corporation as an endowment for municipal purposes and also that all assets and liabilities of the said Board be vested in the Corporation:

    And whereas, to ensure the safe pilotage of any small vessels over the harbour bar, it is also desirable that a harbourmaster be retained for this purpose:

    And whereas the site of the Invercargill Aerodrome is situated on portion of the said land and it is further desired that the status over the land secondly described in the Schedule be altered and the land be revested in the Corporation as a reserve for aerodrome purposes:

    Be it therefore enacted as follows:

    (1) Notwithstanding anything in the Harbours Act 1950 or in any other Act or rule of law, the New River Harbour Board referred to in Schedule 2 of the Harbours Act 1950 is hereby abolished and all assets and liabilities of the said Harbour Board and all other rights and obligations of the Board existing at the commencement of this Act shall vest in and be assumed by the Corporation.

    (2) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the New River Harbour Board Ordinance 1874 or in any other Act or rule of law, the vesting of the land firstly, secondly, and thirdly described in the Schedule in the Corporation is hereby revoked:

    provided that nothing in this section shall be deemed to affect the validity of any dealing with any part of the said land in accordance with the terms under which it was held prior to the commencement of this Act.

    (3) The land firstly and thirdly described in the Schedule is hereby declared to be vested in the Corporation upon trust as an endowment for municipal purposes subject to the provisions of the Municipal Corporations Act 1954 and subject also to all leases, liens, encumbrances, easements, and other restrictions affecting the land:

    provided that the provisions of sections 147 and 148 of the Harbours Act 1950 shall continue to apply in respect of the said land.

    (4) The land secondly described in the Schedule is hereby declared to be vested in the Corporation upon trust as a reserve for aerodrome purposes subject to the Reserves and Domains Act 1953:

    provided that the provisions of sections 147 and 148 of the Harbours Act 1950 shall continue to apply in respect of the said land.

    (5) All leases over any portion of the land firstly and thirdly described in the Schedule subsisting on the coming into force of this section shall be deemed to be made between the Corporation and the lessee named in the instrument of lease and shall continue in full force and effect according to their tenor.

    (6) [Repealed]

    (7) The District Land Registrar for the Land Registration District of Southland is hereby authorized and directed to make such entries in the register books, to register such instruments, and to do all such other things as may be necessary to give effect to the provisions of this section.

    (8) The following enactments are hereby repealed:

    • (a) the New River Harbour Board Land Act 1875:

    • (b) the New River Harbour Endowment and Borrowing Act 1878:

    • (c) the New River Pilot Station Reserve Act 1879:

    • (d) the New River Harbour Endowments Act 1883:

    • (e) the Invercargill Corporation Empowering Act 1888:

    • (f) the New River Harbour Reclamation Act 1902:

    • (g) the Sandy Point and Grasmere Domains Vesting Act 1906:

    • (h) Section 97 of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal and Public Bodies Empowering Act 1917.

    (9) Without limiting the provisions of the Acts Interpretation Act 1924, it is hereby declared that the repeal of any provision by this section shall not affect any document made or any thing whatsoever done under the provision so repealed or under any corresponding former provision, and every such document or thing, so far as it is subsisting or in force at the time of the repeal and could have been made or done under this section, shall continue and have effect as if it had been made or done under the corresponding provision of this section and as if that provision had been in force when the document was made or the thing was done.

    Section 22(6): repealed, on 5 December 1962, by section 8 of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1962 (1962 No 49).

23 Amending section 79 of the Local Legislation Act 1927 in respect of certain financial adjustments between the Crown and the Auckland City Council
  • Whereas by section 79 of the Local Legislation Act 1927 special provisions were made in respect of the Orakei Garden Suburb more particularly described in subsection (11) of that section:

    And whereas the said section 79 provided that, on the publication in the Gazette of a notice by the Minister of Lands that 50% of the saleable land in the said Orakei Garden Suburb had been sold by the Crown and possession thereof given to purchasers, the Auckland City Council (in this section referred to as the Council) was required to pay to the Crown the sum of 200,000 pounds on the terms specified in the said section:

    And whereas it was further provided that, until the publication of such notice as aforesaid, special rates could not be charged by the Council in respect of the said Orakei Garden Suburb:

    And whereas the 50% of the saleable land has not been sold by the Crown but, because of the erection of State houses and the reservation of other land in the Orakei Garden Suburb, the whole of the area has been fully developed:

    And whereas, because of the general development of the locality, it has been agreed between the Council and the Crown that the said sum of 200,000 pounds shall be deemed to have been lent to the Council and the Council shall be deemed to have lawfully borrowed the same from the Crown on 31 March 1956, and that the Council may from that date charge special rates in respect of the Orakei Garden Suburb land:

    And whereas certain new financial arrangements have also been agreed upon between the Council and the Crown for the repayment of the said sum of 200,000 pounds and it is desirable that provision be made to give effect to these matters:

    Be it therefore enacted as follows:

    (1) Notwithstanding the provisions of section 79 of the Local Legislation Act 1927, subsection (4) of that section shall become effective on and from 1 April 1956, as if the notice referred to in subsection (3) of that section had been published.

    (2) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (5) of the said section 79, the sum of 200,000 pounds referred to therein shall be deemed to have been lent to the Council and the Council shall be deemed to have lawfully borrowed the same from the Crown on 31 March 1956, and the said sum shall be repayable together with interest thereon at 4% per annum as from that date by equal annual instalments, combining principal and interest, of 11,566 pounds and 5 pence, each due on 31 March in each year during a period of 30 years from 1 April 1956, the first of the said instalments being due and payable on 31 March 1957:

    provided that, until such time as the Minister of Lands publishes a notice in the Gazette in terms of subsection (3) of the said section 79, the Council, instead of the said annual instalment, shall pay to the Crown an amount equivalent to the amount of the special rates payable in each year in respect of land in the Orakei Garden Suburb:

    provided also that any amount so paid to the Crown shall not exceed the amount of the said annual instalment:

    provided further that, if any such payment is less than the annual instalment for that year, the balance of that instalment shall, without further appropriation than this section, be written off.

    (3) Except as otherwise provided by this section, the provisions of section 79 of the Local Legislation Act 1927 shall remain in full force and effect.

24 Declaring certain land to be vested in Her Majesty for recreation purposes and authorizing the Corporation of the City of New Plymouth to apply money towards certain purposes
  • Whereas the land firstly and secondly described in subsection (4) is vested in the Mayor, Councillors, and Citizens of the City of New Plymouth (in this section referred to as the Corporation) in fee simple for the purposes of a cemetery within the meaning of the Cemeteries Act 1908:

    And whereas the said land firstly and secondly described has not been declared to be dedicated and open as a cemetery pursuant to section 52 of the Cemeteries Act 1908:

    And whereas the land secondly described is adequate for the Corporation's requirements for the purposes of a cemetery:

    And whereas the Corporation proposes to subdivide the said land firstly described into building lots:

    And whereas the land thirdly described in subsection (4) is portion of the land vested in the Corporation in fee simple for the purposes of constructing waterworks for the supply of pure water for the use of the inhabitants of the City:

    And whereas the said land thirdly described is not required for the purposes of constructing waterworks and the Corporation wishes to vest it in the Crown in satisfaction of the reserve requirements under the Land Subdivision in Counties Act 1946 in respect of the proposed subdivision:

    And whereas the land thirdly described is suitable for recreation purposes and it is desirable that it be vested in Her Majesty for such purposes subject to the Reserves and Domains Act 1953:

    And whereas the Corporation also desires the proceeds from the sale of the land in the proposed subdivision to be applied towards all or any of the purposes referred to in this section but there is no statutory or other power enabling the Corporation to do so:

    And whereas it is desirable and expedient that provision be made to give effect to these matters:

    Be it therefore enacted as follows:

    (1) The net proceeds of the sale of the land firstly described in subsection (4) may be applied by the Corporation towards all or any of the following purposes:

    • (a) the development and improvement as a cemetery of the land secondly described in subsection (4) including the construction of a dwelling for a sexton:

    • (b) the provision of roads, sewerage, water, and other services for the purposes of the proposed subdivision of the land firstly described in subsection (4) (the said subdivision being shown on scheme plan lodged in the office of the Chief Surveyor, at New Plymouth, under Number 453):

    • (c) the establishment, development, and improvement of a crematorium.

    (2) The vesting in the Corporation of the land thirdly described in subsection (4) is hereby cancelled and the said land is hereby declared to be vested in Her Majesty as a recreation reserve subject to the Reserves and Domains Act 1953 freed and discharged from all trusts, reservations, and restrictions heretofore affecting the same.

    (3) The District Land Registrar for the Land Registration District of Taranaki is hereby authorized and directed to deposit such plans, to accept such documents for registration, to make such entries in the register books, and to do all such other things as may be necessary to give effect to the provisions of this section.

    (4) The land to which this section relates is particularly described as follows:

    All those areas in the Taranaki Land District, Taranaki County, being—

    Firstly, all that area containing by admeasurement 5 acres 1 rood 35 perches and one-tenth of a perch, more or less, being Lots 1 to 25 inclusive on the scheme plan lodged in the office of the Chief Surveyor, at New Plymouth, under Number 453, and being part of Lot 1 on a Plan deposited in the Land Registry Office at New Plymouth under Number 5612, and being part Sections 85 and 86, Grey District, and part of Section 197, Fitzroy District, Block V, Paritutu Survey District, and being part of the land comprised and described in certificate of title, Volume 153, folio 196, Taranaki Registry.

    Secondly, all that area containing by admeasurement 31 acres 20 perches and nine-tenths of a perch, more or less, being the balance of the land in the said Scheme Plan Number 453, and being the balance of the land comprised and described in certificate of title, Volume 153, folio 196, Taranaki Registry, after deducting the land firstly described in this subsection.

25 Authorizing the Patea Borough Council to expend certain money
  • Whereas pursuant to the Patea Borough Council Empowering Act 1930, the Patea Borough Council (in this section referred to as the Council) was authorized to sell certain reserves in the Town of Patea originally provided by the Crown and to pay the net amount from any sales into a capital fund to be called the Reserves Realization Fund:

    And whereas the net proceeds from the sale of the said reserves credited to the said Fund also includes the value of the improvements existing thereon and formerly owned by the Council:

    And whereas the Council is empowered to expend the revenue derived from the investment of the said Fund, but it is not empowered to use the capital sum thereof:

    And whereas it is desirable and expedient that the Council should be authorized to expend that portion of the said Fund which is represented by the value of the improvements as aforesaid:

    Be it therefore enacted as follows:

    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Patea Borough Council Empowering Act 1930 or in any other Act or rule of law, the Council is hereby authorized to expend from time to time for general borough purposes those moneys held in the Reserves Realization Fund which in the opinion of the Minister of Lands represent the value of improvements on the reserves when the reserves were sold pursuant to the said Patea Borough Council Empowering Act 1930.

26 Authorizing the removal of certain lands from the restrictions of section 19(8) of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1938
  • Whereas section 19 of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1938 validated an agreement dated 25 May 1938, made between the Waikato Land Settlement Society Incorporated (in this section referred to as the Society) of the one part, and His Majesty the King of the other part, whereby it was agreed that the Crown should take over and administer the lands and other assets of the Society as from 1 June 1938:

    And whereas subsection (8) of the said section 19 provided that the person to whom any land had been disposed of by the Society or the person to whom any land vested in His Majesty under the said section 19 was disposed of by the Crown shall not be capable of alienating, mortgaging, charging, or leasing the land or any part thereof or of creating any right, title, estate, or interest in the land or any part thereof except with the prior consent of the Minister of Lands on the recommendation of the Land Settlement Board:

    And whereas it is desirable and expedient that the provisions of the said subsection (8) should cease to apply to any such lands on the expiration of 5 years from the date of the passing of this Act:

    Be it therefore enacted as follows:

    (1) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 19 of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1938 or in any Act or rule of law, subsection (8) of the said section 19 shall cease to have any force and effect at the expiration of a period of 5 years from the date of the passing of this Act.

    (2) The District Land Registrar for the Land Registration District of Auckland shall, upon the expiration of the said period of 5 years, note upon every certificate of title bearing the restriction imposed by the said subsection (8) that the said restriction shall no longer apply.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1955. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the Act as at 8 September 1999, 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).
