Statement of rights

If, after reading this statement, you do not understand anything in it, you should consult a lawyer immediately.

  • 1 This notice sets out 1 or more alleged infringement offences. Each offence that is identified is a separate infringement offence. You may decide what to do in respect of each alleged offence individually, and may act in the same way in respect of all alleged offences or in different ways in respect of different alleged offences, as set out below.

    Note: If, under section 21(3A) or 21(3C)(a) of the Summary Proceedings Act 1957, you enter or have entered into a time-to-pay arrangement with the enforcement authority in respect of an infringement fee payable by you, paragraphs 4(b) and (c), 5, and 6 do not apply and you are not entitled either to request a hearing to deny liability or to ask the court to consider any submissions (as to penalty or otherwise) in respect of the infringement.

Payments
  • 2 If you pay the infringement fee for an alleged offence within 28 days after this notice is served on you, no further enforcement action will be taken for that offence. Payments must be made at the address indicated above.

Defence
  • 3 You have a complete defence against proceedings for an alleged offence if the infringement fee for that offence has been paid to the enforcement authority at the address shown on this notice within 28 days after you are served with a reminder notice. Late payment or payment made to any other address will not constitute a defence.

Further action
  • 4 You may write to the enforcement authority at the address shown above if you wish to—

    • (a) raise any matter relating to the circumstances of an alleged offence for consideration by the enforcement authority; or

    • (b) deny liability for the offence and request a court hearing (refer to paragraphs 5 and 9); or

    • (c) admit liability for the offence, but wish to have a court consider written submissions as to penalty or otherwise (refer to paragraphs 6 and 9).

    The letter must be signed by you and delivered to the enforcement authority at the address specified in this infringement notice and in a reminder notice in respect of the offence before or within 28 days after the service of the reminder notice, or within such further time as the enforcement authority may allow.

  • 5 If you deny liability for the offence and request a hearing, the enforcement authority will, unless it decides not to commence court proceedings in respect of the offence, serve you with a notice of hearing setting out the place and time at which the matter will be heard by the court.

  • 6 If you admit liability for the offence but wish the court to consider your submissions as to penalty or otherwise, you must, in your letter to the enforcement authority,—

    • (a) request a hearing; and

    • (b) admit liability; and

    • (c) set out the written submissions you wish the court to consider.

    The enforcement authority will then file your letter with the court (unless it decides not to commence court proceedings in respect of the offence). There is no provision for an oral hearing before the court if you follow this course of action.

Non-payment of fee
  • 7 If you do not pay the infringement fee and do not request a hearing in respect of an alleged offence within 28 days after being served with this notice, you will (unless the enforcement authority decides otherwise) be served with a reminder notice.

  • 8 If you do not pay the infringement fee and do not request a hearing in respect of the alleged offence within 28 days after being served with the reminder notice, you will become liable to pay costs in addition to the infringement fee unless the enforcement authority decides not to commence proceedings against you.

Queries and correspondence
  • 9 When writing or paying an infringement fee, please indicate—

    • (a) the date of the infringement offence; and

    • (b) the infringement notice number; and

    • (c) each alleged offence and the course of action you are taking in respect of each alleged offence (if this notice sets out more than 1 offence and you are not paying all the infringement fees for the alleged offences); and

    • (d) your address for replies (if you are not paying all the infringement fees for the alleged offences).

    If it is not clear which alleged offence any payment relates to, your payment may be treated as relating to the alleged offences in the order in which they are set out above.

    Note: All queries and correspondence regarding the infringement offence(s) must be directed to the enforcement authority named in this notice at the address shown.

Michael Webster,
for Clerk of the Executive Council.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Local Government (Infringement Fees for Offences—Lake Taupo Navigation Safety Bylaw) Regulations 2010. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the regulations as at 21 October 2011, 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).
