Dear Richard Clark
Thank you for your official information request received on 28 January 2020 for “any
emails and dates/summaries of meetings between LINZ and FENZ (Fire Emergency
New Zealand) on the subject of the NZ Localities dataset since the start of 2016.”
As the scope of your request is currently very broad, we would welcome the opportunity
to speak with you about it. This would help us better understand your request and
provide you with more specific information. It would also enable us to give you an
overview of our Resilience dataset work programme
(which includes the New Zealand
Localities/Suburbs dataset) that you may be interested in.
As we don’t have your telephone number, could you please contact Susan Shaw (Senior
Resilience Advisor) on [email address]
or 04 496-9430 to arrange a suitable time.
Alternatively, if you are unable to speak with us, could you please revise your request
with more clarity as to what information/documentation you require. Please clarify your
request by emailing [LINZ request email].
Please note that we are unable to consider your request further until we receive this
clarification from you (either verbally or written).
If we do not have the opportunity to speak with you or receive clarification of your
request by 19 February 2020
, it will need to be refused under section 18(f) of the
Official Information Act. This is because, as it is currently phrased, the information
requested cannot be made available without substantial collation or research.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Business Manager, Location Information
