The following information relates to dealing with proposed or existing easements over land that is to become common marine and coastal area upon subdivision.
There is no mechanism to register a new easement against land in the common marine and coastal area because there is no owner capable of granting an easement.
Where land is being subdivided, the portion of an existing easement that overlaps land that is to become common marine and coastal area is to be surrendered (refer to page 15 of LINZG20726: Registration guideline for the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011). This surrendered portion is not normally depicted in the CSD diagrams.
In this case, the CSD diagrams must depict the extent of the existing easement that is to be retained.
