Cadastre 2034 is designed to ensure that, in the future, New Zealanders will be able to more easily understand where their rights in land actually are, and will be able to visualise those rights – and any restrictions and responsibilities – in three dimensions.
The vision of Cadastre 2034 is for a broader cadastral system that enables people to readily and confidently identify the location and extent of all rights, restrictions and responsibilities related to land and real property.
“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,” said Land Information Minister Maurice Williamson. “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,” said Mr Williamson.
It’s expected cadastral data will be able to be reused and integrated into other spatially-related information to help grow the location system. This would, in turn, help enable the best use and management of land.
