Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975
State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986
This notice concerns land at Te Hutewai Road, Raglan, and Maori claims under the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975.
The land at Te Hutewai Road, Raglan, is described in legal terms as all that parcel of land containing 4.8540 hectares, more or less, being Section 5, Block I, Karioi Survey District, and being all the land comprised and described in certificate of title 50B/761 (South Auckland Registry).
The land was once owned by the Crown.
It was vested in a State enterprise by a notice in the
New Zealand Gazette under section 24 of the State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986.
There is a special notice or "memorial" on the certificate of title for the land, which provides that, if the Waitangi Tribunal so recommends, the land shall be resumed by
the Crown and returned to Maori ownership (see sections
29A and 27B of the State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986).
The current owner of the land, MARTIN MARIO KONING, has applied to the Waitangi Tribunal to have this memorial removed.
The application has been made under section 8D of the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975.
ANY MAORI PERSON WHO CONSIDERS THAT THEY, OR ANY GROUP WHICH THEY BELONG TO,
HAS A CLAIM TO MAKE TO THE WAITANGI TRIBUNAL ABOUT THIS LAND, SHOULD SUBMIT THEIR CLAIM TO THE WAITANGI TRIBUNAL BEFORE 14 FEBRUARY 2002.
Section 6 of the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975 sets out the grounds for making a claim.
Claims may be posted to the Registrar, Waitangi Tribunal, Third Floor, 110 Featherston Street, Wellington.
If no claim about this land is made to the Waitangi Tribunal before 14 February 2002, the Tribunal may recommend that the land be no longer subject to resumption by the Crown and be returned to Maori.
Dated at Te Awamutu this 12th day of November 2001.
