This Act vests the ownership of the foreshore and sea-bed in the Crown, subject to the public rights of: (a) navigation and fishing, and (b) of passing over the foreshore, and to any private rights that may exist in or over the foreshore or the sea-bed. The Minister may by notice, after consultation with landowners, designate a foreshore of an island or islet or any part thereof. No person shall remove from a designated foreshore any sand, gravel, reef mud, coral, rock or other like substance without first having obtained from the Chief Lands Officer a licence for that purpose. The Minister may authorize the reclamation of land over and upon the foreshore or the sea-bed irrespective of the ownership of land bordering on or of whether any land borders on such foreshore or sea-bed.

Implemented by: Foreshore Licence Regulations (Cap. 46.10.1). (2008-12-31)
