This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 18 January 2013, provide for fees relating to the consideration and processing of applications made, or actions taken, under sections 34 to 45 of the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011 (the Act). Those provisions relate to the reclamation of land from the marine and coastal area.
The fees relate to—
applications for interests in reclaimed land under section 35 of the Act (applications by developers and others) or section 43 of the Act (applications by customary marine title groups):
the vesting of freehold interests and lesser interests in reclaimed land in respect of those applications:
applications to the Minister to vary a determination made under section 36(1) of the Act (being a determination that relates to, for example, whether an interest in reclaimed land is to be granted and any terms or conditions relating to the interest or grant):
applications by holders of lesser interests in reclaimed land for a renewal of the interest in the same, or a part of the same, reclaimed land:
requests for certificates under section 44(3) of the Act (being certificates that state that a freehold interest in reclaimed land has been disposed of in accordance with section 45 of the Act or that the disposition is permitted by section 44(2) of the Act).
Regulation 14 is a transitional provision that applies if an application has been made under section 35 or 43 of the Act before the commencement of the regulations but the application is to be considered and processed after commencement. In this case, the application fee is payable within 20 working days after the applicant confirms to Land Information New Zealand (after commencement) that the applicant still wants the application to proceed.
Date of notification in Gazette: 13 December 2012.
These regulations are administered by Land Information New Zealand.
