This guideline helps surveyors identify water bodies that will qualify for marginal strips when the Crown is disposing of the adjoining land.

Summary

The marginal strips retained by the Crown when it disposes of land are an important component of the means of providing for public access to and along waterways and lakes. They also serve particular conservation purposes along the margins of those water bodies and in relation to water quality.

This guideline is intended to assist surveyors to identify water bodies that will qualify for marginal strips when the Crown is disposing of the adjoining land.

It is based on the Department of Conservation’s interpretation of the relevant provisions of the Conservation Act 1987 but it is not intended as a substitute for the legislation or legal advice.
