Craig v Kira - Wainui 2F4D

Māori Appellate Court (2006) 7 Taitokerau Appellate MB 1 (7 APWH 1)

2 November 2006

Partially successful appeal from a Māori Land Court decision dismissing an application for change of status to General land for the purpose of sale. A change of status would enable more effective utilisation and management, the land having been un-utilised for 60 years. In order to balance the interests of the preferred class of alienees the change of status should only be sought in relation to land which, once sold, would provide sufficient funds for the development of the remaining land.

24 February 2006

Application to change the status of land and for confirmation of alienation of Māori freehold land dismissed. There was no evidence that the change of status would enable the land to be used more effectively as General land. Sale could be confirmed if parties were willing to proceed with the sale of land as Māori freehold land.
