Description of this Book
What is the foreshore? What is the seabed? These issues are currently at the forefront of public minds and NZ legal practice. Foreshore and Seabed provides an overview of the common law relating to the foreshore and seabed, the context of the Court of Appeal's Ngati Apa decision in 2003, and the policy, history, and key provisions of the Foreshore and Seabed Act 2004. New Zealand's land law and fisheries legislative programme has seldom had as much scrutiny as in recent times, the catalyst for much opinion and debate stemming from the issues of ownership of foreshore and seabed areas. The Foreshore and Seabed Act 2004 is part of the government's response to the Court of Appeal Ngati Apa decision over Maori common law rights in the foreshore and seabed. This book is an easy-to-read, concise discussion of the 2004 legislation and the process leading up to it. The text includes a number of hard-to-find documents and a full text of the 2004 Act and related legislation.
