Statement of reasons

This notice, which comes into force on the day after the date of its notification in the Gazette and expires on 31 October 2009, exempts Grey Water Limited and Livewell Limited from sections 33, 37, 37A, 38A, and 54B(3) of the Securities Act 1978, subject to conditions, in respect of the offer of securities in Grey Water Limited.

The securities in Grey Water Limited are to be offered as part of a scheme that requires purchasers of residential properties in a development (known as Mangawhai Stage 1 and Mangawhai Stage 2 and situated at Mangawhai Heads in North Auckland) to subscribe for those securities. The purpose of the scheme is to facilitate the use, ownership, and management of communal facilities by Grey Water Limited for the benefit of the residential property owners in the development in connection with the drainage, treatment, and disposal of sewage and waste water.

The Securities Commission considers that it is appropriate to grant the exemptions because—

  • it is consistent with the policy of previous exemptions the Commission has granted in relation to residential property developments, including a class notice (the Securities Act (Residential Property Developments) Exemption Notice 1999); and

  • the securities involved in these developments are not intended for purposes of investment, but rather to confer ownership rights and rights to use the communal facilities in a residential development. The conditions of exemption require that the entity offering the securities does not have as its objects the carrying on of trading activities or a business for profit. Rather, the purpose of the Issuer is to allow the owners of residential lots to participate in the control of the communal facilities.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 28 October 2004.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Securities Act (Grey Water Limited) Exemption Notice 2004. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the notice as at 1 November 2009, as specified in the list of amendments at the end of these notes.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that have yet to come into force or that contain relevant transitional or savings provisions are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order.

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).
