Palmerston North Reserves Empowering Amendment Bill

The Palmerston North City Council currently holds certain land under the Palmerston North Reserves Act 1922 which prevents the Council from selling the land. The Council wishes to be able to sell the land if it becomes surplus to the Council's requirements, and this Bill provides the mechanism for this by amending the Palmerston North Reserves Empowering Act 1966.
