District Plan GIS Data

Robert Coup made this Official Information request to Auckland Council

The request was successful.

From: Robert Coup

Dear Auckland Council,

I'm after the existing district plan zones as GIS data. I realise I can query which printed map sheet a property is under via http://maps.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/auck... but I'm after the data in bulk as GIS data for all former councils.

Specifically, being able to determine which geographic areas are have an underlying zone of, for example, "Residential Heritage 6" (Manukau). I don't need Regional council/air/water/etc data or special conditions/restrictions, just the underlying district plan zones.

I'd suggest ESRI File Geodatabase or Shapefiles, but I'll take whatever I can get. More data is better than less, you don't need to spend time filtering it.

If the data is not available for some former councils or areas, I'll take whatever I can get.

Please contact me via email if you need more clarification.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Coup
