221 Territorial authority to issue a consent notice

(1)

Where a subdivision consent is granted subject to a condition to be complied with on a continuing basis by the subdividing owner and subsequent owners after the deposit of a survey plan (not being a condition in respect of which a bond is required to be entered into by the subdividing owner, or a completion certificate is capable of being or has been issued), the territorial authority shall, for the purposes of section 224, issue a consent notice specifying any such condition.

(2)

Every consent notice must be signed by a person authorised by the territorial authority to sign consent notices.

(3)

At any time after the deposit of the survey plan,—

(a)

the owner may apply to a territorial authority to vary or cancel any condition specified in a consent notice:

(b)

the territorial authority may review any condition specified in a consent notice and vary or cancel the condition.

(3A)

Sections 88 to 121 and 127(4) to 132 apply, with all necessary modifications, in relation to an application made or review conducted under subsection (3).

(4)

Every consent notice shall be deemed—

(a)

to be an instrument creating an interest in the land within the meaning of section 51 of the Land Transfer Act 2017, and may be registered accordingly; and

(b)

to be a covenant running with the land when registered under the Land Transfer Act 2017, and shall, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 103 of the Land Transfer Act 2017, bind all subsequent owners of the land.

(5)

Where a consent notice has been registered under the Land Transfer Act 2017 and any condition in that notice has been varied or cancelled after an application or review under subsection (3) or has expired, the Registrar-General of Land shall, if he or she is satisfied that any condition in that notice has been so varied or cancelled or has expired, make an entry in the register and on any relevant instrument of title noting that the consent notice has been varied or cancelled or has expired, and the condition in the consent notice shall take effect as so varied or cease to have any effect, as the case may be.
