The Minister may, by Order published in the Gazette, declare any area of public land to be a preserved area. Section 4 declares the Land Ordinance to apply to preserved areas. It shall not be lawful for any person to use or occupy land within a preserved area except under: (1) a Government lease; (2) a right of occupancy granted under section 6 or section 12 of the Land Ordinance; (3) a sub-lease or other grant created out of a Government lease or any such right or occupancy; or (4) any other written authority to use or occupy land granted by or on behalf of the President or any other person as specified in section 4, comma [b]. Nothing in section 4 shall prejudice or affect titles of any native or native community to use or occupy land as specified in section 5. The remaining sections provide for the recording of titles in land within preserved areas (sect. 6), the demarcation of boundaries of preserved areas (sect. 7), compensation for extinguishment of certain titles (sect. 7A), and regulation making powers of the Minister (sect. 8). (8 sections)
