Minister welcomes new cadastral strategy

Minister welcomes new cadastral strategy

Land Information Minister Maurice Williamson today welcomed the release of Cadastre 2034 strategy by the Surveyor-General.

The cadastre is the official record of land boundaries. It includes official survey plans, information about boundary marks, survey measurements, and other supporting information provided by surveyors.

“The Cadastre 2034 strategy will look to set New Zealand’s cadastral system within the wider location system as part of a broader property rights framework. While New Zealand already has a world-class cadastral system, a gap is developing between what we have now and will be needed in future.

“Advances in location-based technology in the next 20 years will transform the expectations of landowners, businesses, government agencies and the general public.

“I’m pleased to see the Surveyor-General plans to respond to these new expectations and the opportunities that will arise,” Mr Williamson says.

It’s expected cadastral data would be able to be reused and integrated into other spatially-related information to help grow the location system. This would help enable the best use and management of land.

Gordon Campbell: On Populism And Labour 2017

For many people on the centre-left, populism is a dirty word, and a shorthand for the politics of bigotry. In this country, it has tended to be equated with the angry legions of New Zealand First. Who knew they were not just a reactionary spasm, but the wave of the future? More>>
