Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order replaces the Waiheke Road District (Matiatia) Foreshore Licence Notice 1958 and the Waiheke Road District (Orapiu) Foreshore Licence Notice 1958. It also grants a foreshore licence in respect of a landing ramp at Okahuiti Creek. Clauses 5 to 19 are new, but otherwise the licence is substantially in the same terms as those being replaced, but is granted by Order in Council instead of by notice by the Minister of Marine in order to remove doubts as to the validity of the regulations in Part 2.


Issued under the authority of the Regulations Act 1936.

Date of notification in Gazette: 10 May 1962.
