The Act provides for the designation of land use of the Cook Islands. The 17 sections are divided into 3 Parts: Zoning Orders (I); Land Use Board (II); Administration (III). The High Commissioner may issue Orders to establish zones of land use. The use of land within the created zone shall be pursuant to the Order (sects. 3 and 4). Except in accordance with the terms of the Order, an occupier shall not make any permanent improvement or alteration or erect any building without the prior consent of the Board (sect. 6). The Land Use Board, created in Part II, makes recommendations to the Minister on the need to establish or alter zones or the conditions attached to zones. It further hears and determines applications and objections by landowners and occupiers related to zones (sects. 10 and 11). The Act is administered by the Department of justice, which shall be also responsible for the enforcement of the Act.
