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 lodging specialist datasets that are not prepared under the Rules for Cadastral Survey.

Historically, plans such as electoral plans, parliamentary plans, airshed plans, and some graphical description plans, have been lodged in the cadastre for a variety of purposes.  As these are not cadastral survey datasets, they are not provided for under the Rules.

Some types of graphical description plans did define the extent of a right or interest in land.  In these cases, the appropriate CSD must be used (eg a reserve re-classification CSD could be a 'legalisation' CSD).

LINZ does allow the lodgement of some specialist datasets for recording in Landonline that are not cadastral survey datasets in terms of the Cadastral Survey Act 2002.  Application to LINZ must be made prior to the lodgement of any dataset which is not certified in accordance with the cadastral rules.
