Supplementary Order Paper

Thursday, 17 March 2011

Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Bill

Proposed amendment

Hilary Calvert, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 27

To add the following subclause (after line 35 on page 31):

  • (5) To avoid doubt, neither a customary marine title group nor applicant group is entitled to charge or collect fees or other form of payment from any person or body to access, stay in or on, and engage in any recreational activities on any part of the common marine and coastal area.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Bill to ensure that no individual or group may be charged for access to the common marine and coastal area. It is based on the similar prohibition on charging contained in the existing Foreshore and Seabed Act, which draws a distinction between an individual and a body. The Supplementary Order Paper proposed by the Attorney-General does not do this, and mentions only the individual. This Supplementary Order Paper replaces SOP No 210.
