Ward 2018 Clipped (generalised)

  • Added 03 Dec 2017
  • Updated 06 Dec 2017

This dataset is the major released version of the annually released ward boundaries at 1 January 2018, clipped to the coastline. This clipped version has been created for map creation/cartographic purposes and does not fully represent the official full extent boundaries. Wards are defined under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from dividing a territorial authority for electoral purposes. Wards are defined at meshblock level.

Digital boundary data became freely available on 1 July 2007. This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.
