Decision Report

Consultation of the Draft Cadastral Survey Rules 2020 closed on 24 April 2020. We received 36 submissions from various stakeholders including the Cadastral Surveyors Licensing Board, Survey and Spatial NZ Cadastral Stream, Hawke’s Bay branch, Institute of Cadastral Surveying and the Walking Access Commission.  As a result of the submissions a number of changes have been made to the draft rules.

The Surveyor-General has released a report summarising these key submissions and his final decisions in preparing the new cadastral survey Rules.

Next Steps

We are finalising the drafting of the Rules and intend to publish them on the legislation website early in 2021.  The Rules are planned to come into effect in June 2021 to coincide with implementation of the necessary Landonline changes.  Unlike previous implementations, these changes include enabling a transition period when Landonline will be able to receive Cadastral Survey Datasets under both the 2010 and 2021 Rules.  We will provide an update on these timeframes in early 2021.
