Tenure review ended on 18 May 2022, the day after the Crown Pastoral Land Reform Act came into effect.
Tenure review was a voluntary process that gave pastoral lessees an opportunity to buy land capable of economic use, while land with high conservation values was protected and restored to full Crown ownership as conservation land.
Tenure reviews were conducted by the Commissioner of Crown Lands (CCL). We managed the tenure review process on behalf of the CCL.
We sought input from a number of organisations at various stages in the process, including the Department of Conservation, Fish & Game New Zealand, local iwi, and the public.
Below is a list of the Crown pastoral leases that completed tenure review.
