All that land (including the foreshore, internal waters, and seabed below mean high water mark and the waters related thereto) from the north-eastern most point of Cape Wiwiki at the mean high water mark (including Tikitiki Island); and thence, along the coastline to the South following a landward boundary being the mean high water mark; and thence, to the most northerly point of the Taukawau Point (and including the Rimariki Island) on the mean high water mark; and from thence, in a direction north-east to a seaward boundary being the outer limits of the Territorial sea (as defined in the Territorial Sea, Contiguous Zone, and Exclusive Economic Zone Act 1977); and from thence, along the outer limit of the Territorial sea until a point directly north-east of that point described above; and thence, in a direction South-West to a point described above; and including the foreshores of all islands within the area described above.

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.

4. All that land having as its landward boundary mean high water mark from the western bank of Wairakei Stream to the western bank of Te Awa o Te Atua and thereafter extending out to the Territorial Sea.
