What information can I look at on my property?

How do I find my property?

Use the 'Pre-Defined Query icon'  Predefined Query iconSelect either: Your Street name or the first few characters of it, and select a Street from the returned list; The legal description; Or the SUE (LINZ number).


Do I need to load Adobe Flash Player?

Aerial Imagery 

We are currently running the high resolution imagery from 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2014. The low resolution imagery (from the WRAPS project) is from 2003, 2008 and 2012.


Can I see the District Plan layers?

No. As the District Plan is a legal document  please view the maps section of our Online District Plan (GIS is an inexact science and parcels move as surveying corrects the more error prone rural parcels. Some of these movements cause other corrections.)
