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.

Rule 20.5 requires occupation and physical features information relating to a redefined affected boundary and its associated boundary points to be recorded in a diagram.

The requirement applies to the entire length of a redefined affected boundary and its associated boundary points which is different to the ‘normal’ requirements in rule 9.5(b) which apply only to boundary points.

The information must include the nature and age of the physical feature, the physical features relationship to the defined boundary and boundary points, and any details of unofficial boundary marks found about the boundary as set out in rule 9.5(a) [r 20.5].  An example of this information that has become important in greater Christchurch is the inclusion of offsets, as recorded in pre-earthquake CSDs or field books, to buildings and structures that survived the earthquakes.
