This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which is made under section 65(2)(a) of the Conservation Act 1987 and comes into force 28 days after the date of its notification in the Gazette, amends sections 5(2) and 12(3) of the Palmerston North Showgrounds Act 1974 to enable the Minister of Conservation to exercise functions formally vested in the Minister of Lands. The Minister of Conservation is now the appropriate Minister for the purposes of those provisions.
Section 5(2) of the Act enables the Palmerston North City Council to exercise certain of the Minister's powers in respect of the showgrounds.
Section 12(3) of the Act provides that an alteration to Schedule 2, which sets out the constitution and powers of the Palmerston North Showgrounds Board of Control, must be approved by the Minister before it has any effect. Section 12(1) of the Act enables that schedule to be amended by mutual agreement in writing between the City Council, the Manawatu and West Coast Agricultural and Pastoral Association (Incorporated), and the Board of Control.
