This notice concerns land at 43 McKay Crescent, Dargaville, and Māori claims under the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975.

The land at 43 McKay Crescent, Dargaville, is described in legal terms as Lot 88 DP 64614 and comprised in Certificate of Title NA80D/111 (North Auckland Land Registry).

The land was once owned by the Crown. It was transferred to a State enterprise under section 23 of the State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986.

There is a special notice of “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 Māori ownership (see sections 27A and 27B of the State-Owned Enterprises Act 1986, sections 212 and 213 of the Education Act 1989 or section 39 of the New Zealand Railways Corporation Restructuring Act 1990).

The current owner of the land, SUSAN MARY CRUMP, has applied to the Waitangi Tribunal to have this memorial removed.
