This dataset was last updated on Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 02 Feb 2020.

This dataset is the definitive set of annually released community board and local board boundaries for 2020 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission and maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 187 categories.

Community boards are set up under the Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. Their purpose is to administer the affairs of communities with populations not less than 1,500 within rural, urban, or metropolitan districts of a territorial authority.

Local boards also fall within the community board classification. Local boards were introduced as part of the new local government arrangements for Auckland in 2010. Local boards share governance with a council’s governing body and each has complementary responsibilities, guaranteed by legislation. There are 21 local boards in the Auckland Council.

Names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons. The column name for those without macrons is suffixed ‘ascii’.

This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 30 Nov 2022.

This dataset is the definitive set of community board boundaries for 2023 as defined by the territorial authorities and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ. This classification includes community boards and local boards.

Community boards and local boards provide voting representation at a community level. They are defined under the Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. Local boards were introduced as part of the new local government arrangements for Auckland in 2010. Community boards and local boards are defined at meshblock level and do not coincide with the statistical area 1 (SA1) or statistical area 2 (SA2) geographies.

Structure

The purpose of community boards is to administer the affairs of communities with a population of 1,500 or more people within rural, urban, or metropolitan areas of a territorial authority. A community board’s functions, powers, and duties are at the discretion of its parent territorial authority, so these may differ between community boards.

Community boards are a link between the council and the community. Community boards can be established at any time but may only be abolished as part of a council’s regular representation review carried out before the triennial local government elections; this is provided for in the Local Electoral Act 2001.

Local boards can be established within any unitary authority. Local boards share governance with a council’s governing body, and each has complementary responsibilities guaranteed by legislation. Local boards can propose bylaws and they gather community views on local and regional matters.

Community board and local board boundaries must coincide with meshblock boundaries under Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. Community boards, local boards and wards both sit within territorial authorities. There is not a one-to-one relationship and community boards and local boards may straddle wards.

Numbering

The Community Board classification is a flat classification. Community boards are numbered based on their corresponding territorial authority. Each community board has a unique five-digit number. The first three digits refer to the territorial authority that the community board lies within. The following two digits are sequential and represent the number of community boards within the territorial authority. For example, Tararua District (041) has two community boards numbered 04101 and 04102. The rest of the district is not represented by a community board and is coded ‘04199 Area outside community’.

The descriptor ‘Area outside community’ is applied to each individual territorial authority that has any areas outside community board or does not have community boards.

There is also a code of 99999 for those areas outside of territorial authority areas.

Maintenance

The Local Electoral Act 2001 provides for community boards to be reviewed before every second triennial local government election.

Local boards cannot be abolished or their boundaries changed except through a reorganisation process.

The Community Board classification is released annually on 1 January to coincide with the update of meshblocks, but there are not always changes from the previous classification.

This dataset is the provisional 2023 dataset for Community Board. The final 2023 layer is scheduled to be published on 8 December 2022 as part of the annual boundary release.

The intention of providing this provisional dataset is to make available the boundaries that will be used for the local body elections being held in October 2022.

This dataset is the provisional set of community board boundaries for 2023 as defined by the territorial authorities and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 111 community boards and 21 local boards (excluding Area Outside Community).

Community boards are set up under the Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. Their purpose is to administer the affairs of communities with populations not less than 1,500 within rural, urban, or metropolitan districts of a territorial authority. A community board’s functions, powers, and duties are delegated at the discretion of its parent territorial authority and these may differ between community boards. Community boards and their boundaries are reviewed in the year before the three-yearly local government elections.

Local boards fall within the community board classification but their boundaries are changed by way of reorganisation applications under the Local Government Act 2002, and not through the representation review process. Local board names can be changed as part of a representation review process.

Names are provided with and without tohutō/macrons. The name field without macrons is suffixed ‘ascii’.
