Heritage NZ ordered to pay oil company 120k | Radio New Zealand News:
Ed: The case is Environment Court Decision  NZEnvC 11 ... appeal pursuant to section 58 of the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act 2014 between Greymouth Petroleum Ltd and Heritage New Zealand. (Interim because it did not set authority conditions or assign costs - it has now done the latter as the newspapers report.)
Worth reading by heritage professionals as it shows the court's view of the archaeological provisions. "... we find that the purpose of Subpart 2 of Part 3 of the Act is to protect the integrity of archaeological sites which persons seek to modify or destroy, not to protect the wider cultural landscape." Para .
The court's considerations on dealing with traditional knowledge of sites where the location is undisclosed is also of interest.
The costs award reflects that in the court's view, HNZ wrongly declined an authority on its misinterpretation of its Act and the procedural errors it made.
