Note: this guideline is issued by the Surveyor-General under section 7(1)(ga) of the Cadastral Survey Act 2002 about the Rules for Cadastral Survey 2010 and is not legally binding.

The following information relates to the structure and key components required for a cadastral survey dataset (CSD), and the inclusion of additional non-mandatory information.

Components for a CSD creating a new parcel

Where a new parcel is being created, the content of a CSD must include three key plan components [r 8.1]:

Component

Description

CSD Plan [r 8.1(a)]

This component holds survey information and is designed for survey users.  

The information provides a record of the survey as lodged and certified, and is necessary to enable the accurate re-establishment of boundaries in the future.

Title Plan [r 8.1(b)]

This component holds title information, and is designed for tenure managers and right holders.  

The information is necessary for the correct management and allocation of rights; to support the resource consent process (before and after lodging with LINZ); and to depict the rights for current and future landowners, right-holders and other interested parties.

Other specified information [r 8.1(c)-(f) and r 8.2]

This component holds information not required to be part of the CSD Plan or Title Plan, but necessary for the CSD to be integrated into the cadastre and to enable the tenure manager to issue the intended rights. 

How the CSD components fit together for the Rules

The CSD Plan, Title Plan, and Other specified information combine to make up a CSD (refer to Figure 1 below).

Figure 1: Relationship between CSD components

Title Plan not required where no new parcel

Where a new parcel is not being created (eg a CSD that records only survey information or the placement of a boundary mark), the Title Plan component is not required (refer to Content of a boundary marking SO CSD). 

How the CSD components fit together in Landonline

In Landonline, the CSD Plan, Title Plan, and Other information combine to make up a CSD (refer to Figure 2 below).

'Other information' will include the mandatory information specified by rules 8.1(c)-(f) and 8.2 plus non-mandatory information supporting the CSD.

The CSD Plan will include the mandatory information specified by rule 9.  Some of the non-diagrammatic information will be captured as components of the survey header and the mark and vector report.  Where the information is attached as a 'Plan graphic' supporting document, Landonline will incorporate it as part of the Diagram of Survey and the Diagram of Parcels.

The Title Plan will include the mandatory information specified by rule 10.

Non-mandatory information

Additional information may be included in CSD, such as traverse sheets, calculation sheets, schedules for legalisation CSD or additional diagrams.  Where it is included in a CSD, it must be consistent with the other information in the CSD required by the Rules.
