Any such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. 4.

Any such damage caused shall be made good by the Crown and the land shall be restored as near as reasonably practicable to the condition existing before entry or alternatively the Crown may at its option compensate the owners for any damage. 6. Liability of Owners in Respect of Damage to Pipeline If the owners, their servants, contractors, agents, invitees or workmen shall in any way damage the pipeline the liability of the owners in respect of such damage shall be as follows: (a) If the owners shall have obtained a permit (either in writing or in such manner as the Crown may from time to time in its absolute discretion determine) from the Crown authorising them to carry out any particular work on the pipeline easement and in the course of carrying out such work in compliance with the conditions set forth in such permit such damage shall occur then the owners shall not be liable for the costs of and incidental to the repairing of such damage. (b) If prior to commencement of any work on the pipeline easement the owners shall fail to obtain a permit in writing from the Crown and if having obtained such permit as aforesaid shall fail to comply with the terms and conditions set forth therein or otherwise imposed by the Crown in respect thereof and if such damage shall occur during the course of such work then the owners shall be liable for the first two thousand dollars ($2000.00) only in the cost of making good such damage and incidental loss which may have been suffered by the Crown provided that the aforesaid limitation of liability to two thousand dollars ($2000.00) to be borne by the owners as aforesaid shall be adjusted upwards automatically on an annual basis by relating the same to movements in the general consumer price index (C.P.I.) for New Zealand published from time to time by the New Zealand Department of Statistics to establish at any given time in the future the then value of the aforesaid sum of two thousand dollars ($2000.00). Such adjustments shall be made on the basis of movements in the C.P.I. for twelve (12) month periods ending on the 31st day of March in each and every year the first such adjustment to be made for the year ending 31st March 1989. 7. The Crown shall have the right to erect and maintain such fixtures or markers as may be necessary to indicate the location of the pipeline provided that such fixtures or markers do not interfere with the reasonable management of the said land.
