The President may authorize land reclamation by owners of land bordering the foreshore. Before authority is granted the procedure as set out in the First Schedule shall be followed as far as possible. Any reclamation authorized shall be carried out by and to the complete satisfaction of the Director of Public Works. These provisions shall apply also to the Crown where the foreshore borders form part of the domaine public. The reclaimed land shall become property of the Crown as part of the domaine privé. The President may also authorize land reclamation works or performance of other works on the foreshore or seabed irrespective of ownership of land. Objections to such works shall be made to the Manager of Public Works. Section 8 provides for the limitation of claims. Retrospective authority may be granted pursuant to section 12 and extension of undertakings may be authorized under section 13. Regulation making powers of the President are defined by section 14.
