A notice containing the description of the reserve or that part of it which is retained for purposes in the public interest, made according to law, must be registered by the Minister, not later than 12 December 1993, in the registry office of the registration division in which the immovable is situated. Registration is effected by deposit, free of charge. In a territory under cadastral survey, the notice is entered in the index of immovables.
From the date of registration, section 45.1 shall apply to the reserve or that part of it which is not affected by the notice. If no notice has been registered within the period prescribed in the second paragraph, section 45.1 shall apply to the whole reserve.
The Minister may also, on the same conditions, register a notice to exempt a land from the application of the first paragraph; from the date of registration, section 45.1 applies to the reserve or that part of it which is affected by the notice.
