Kaikoura District Court more detail…


The Kaikoura Magistrate's Court was established in 1876. The Magistrates' Courts, known until 1893 as Resident Magistrates' Courts, constituted the lowest rung on the New Zealand court hierarchy and had a combined civil and criminal jurisdiction. The Court's registrar undertook a number of other government functions, including the registration of births, deaths and marriages. At some point in the late 20th century there ceased to be a local registrar and the Court was managed from elsewhere although the registry stayed in Kaikoura. In the early 1980s the Court was managedf rom the Christchurch District Court, and this formally passed to Rangiora in 1987. At this point the records were removed from Kaikoura to Rangiora. The Court house was burnt down in 2010 but the Court continued to sit in other premises. In 2012 Rangiora handed the registry and management function to Blenheim District Court.
