Explanatory note

General policy statement

The Palmerston North City Council (the Council) currently holds certain land under the Palmerston North Reserves Act 1922 (the former Act). Land held under the former Act cannot be sold. The Council wishes to be able to sell land for development if it becomes surplus to the Council’s requirements. This Bill provides the mechanism for this by amending the Palmerston North Reserves Empowering Act 1966 (the principal Act).

Clause by clause analysis

Clause 1 is the title clause.

Clause 2 provides that the Bill, when enacted, commences on the day after the date on which it receives the Royal assent.
