This notice concerns land the southern ends of Colenso Street and Ridgeway Drive, Kamo East, Whangarei City and Maori claims under the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975.
The land at the southern ends of Colenso Street and Ridgeway Drive, Kamo East, Whangarei City, is described in legal terms as Lot 1 Deposited Plan 194935 and Part Section 1 Survey Office Plan 66033.
The land was once owned by the Crown.
It was vested in a State enterprise under sections 24 and 28 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 27A and 27B of the State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986).
The current owner of the land, TRIBRO KAMO LIMITED, 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 TO WHICH THEY BELONG, HAS
A CLAIM TO MAKE TO THE WAITANGI TRIBUNAL ABOUT THIS LAND SHOULD SUBMIT THEIR CLAIM TO THE TRIBUNAL BEFORE 17 SEPTEMBER 2007.
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, PO Box 5022 or DX SP 22525, Wellington, or delivered to the Registrar, Waitangi Tribunal, Level 2, 141 The Terrace, Wellington.
A number of claims have been made in relation to land in Whangarei.
These claims are likely to be heard in the Northland district inquiry.
If no claim about this land is made to the Waitangi Tribunal before 17 September 2007, the tribunal may recommend that the land be no longer subject to resumption by the Crown and be returned to Maori.
Dated at Auckland this 8th day of June 2007.
