This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on the 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, directs every regional council to—
identify (at the time they identify space under section 9 of the Maori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004 and in addition to the space identified under that section) 20% of new space available for application for coastal permits or allocation of authorisations; and
allocate authorisations for the identified new space to the trustee (Te Ohu Kai Moana Trustee Limited).
This order applies in relation to a harbour or regional coastline only to the extent necessary for the Crown to meet its obligation to provide to the trustee space in the coastal marine area equivalent to 20% of pre-commencement space in relation to the harbour or regional coastline.
The Ministry of Fisheries’ website (www.fish.govt.nz) contains a schedule of relevant harbours and regional coastlines, showing for each one the total pre-commencement space, the new space provided to the trustee, and the balance (if any) of space still to be provided to the trustee.
