3. All that land (including the foreshore, internal waters, and seabed below mean high water mark and the waters related thereto) from Te Kopuawaiwaha Titahi at the north west end of Te Rerenga Paraaoa at the mean high water mark; and then, along the coastline in an easterly direction along the southern coast of Te Rerenga Paraaoa to Koutu and then south to the eastern end of Andersons Cove on the northern side of Bream Tail following a landward boundary being the mean high water mark; and then, in a direction eastwards being the outer limits of the Territorial sea (as defined in the Territorial Sea, Contiguous Zone, and exclusive Economic Zone Act 1977).

In addition since my reply to written question No 10527 (2003), one further application was lodged on 18 August 2003 but was not determined a foreshore and seabed matter until after my reply. The locality is as follows.
