This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 11 Jul 2019.

This dataset is the provisional 2020 dataset for Subdivision. The final 2020 layer is scheduled to be published on 4 December 2019.

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 2019.

This dataset is the provisional set of subdivision boundaries for 2020 as defined by the territorial authorities and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 79 subdivisions (excluding Area Outside Subdivision).

Subdivisions are set up under the Local Government Act 2002 and Local Electoral Act 2001. A subdivision is a division of a community or local board area for electoral purposes.

Subdivisions are defined at meshblock level, and do not coincide with the statistical area 1 (SA1) geography or the statistical area 2 (SA2) geography. A number of territorial authorities do not have subdivisions, and if they do, the subdivisions do not necessarily cover the whole territorial authority area. Subdivisions nest within community or local boards. Where a community or local board is divided into subdivisions all of the community or local board area must be included in a subdivision.

This dataset is the provisional 2020 dataset for Ward. The final 2020 layer is scheduled to be published on 4 December 2019.

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 2019.

This dataset is the provisional set of ward boundaries for 2020 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 226 wards (excluding Area Outside Ward).

Wards were originally set up within any territorial authority with a population of at least 20,000. Wards are defined under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from dividing a territorial authority for electoral purposes. The ward system was designed to allow for the recognition of communities within a territorial authority and to increase community involvement in the local government system.

Territorial authorities can now choose whether they would like to maintain electoral wards. As a result, the number of wards has steadily decreased since they were first created in 1989. Ward boundaries are reviewed in the year before the three-yearly local government elections.

This dataset is the provisional 2020 dataset for Constituency. The final 2020 layer is scheduled to be published on 4 December 2019.

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 2019.

This dataset is the provisional set of regional council constituency boundaries for 2020 as defined by the regional councils and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 58 constituencies (excluding Area Outside Regional Council Constituency).

Constituencies are established under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from the division of a region for electoral purposes.

If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the council are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies.

Constituencies are divisions of regional council areas. They are defined at meshblock level, and do not coincide with the statistical area 1 (SA1) geography or the statistical area 2 (SA2) geography. They are created, based on population, to be the voting areas within councils. Constituencies are required to reflect communities of interest. Their boundaries, so far as is practicable, coincide with those of territorial authorities or wards. The boundaries of constituencies may be reviewed before each three-yearly local government election. Regional councils must review their representation arrangements at least once every six years. The provisions for such reviews are in the Local Government Act 2002.

This dataset is the provisional 2020 dataset for Māori ward. The final 2020 layer is scheduled to be published on 4 December 2019.

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 2019.

This dataset is the provisional set of Māori ward boundaries for 2020 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains one Māori ward (excluding Area Outside Māori Ward).

The Local Electoral Act 2001 provides that Māori wards may be established in territorial authorities. The statutory provisions for establishing Māori wards are set out in sections 19Z to 19ZH of the Local Electoral Act 2001. Establishing Māori wards can be achieved by a local authority resolution or a favourable outcome of a poll of electors.

Māori wards are numbered based on their corresponding territorial authority. Each Māori ward has a unique five-digit code. The first three digits represent the territorial authority that the Māori ward lies within. The following two digits are sequential and represent the number of Māori wards within a territorial authority.

The first Māori ward was created by representation review in 2019 and appears in the 2020 geographic boundaries released by Stats NZ. The first Māori ward to be created is Wairoa Māori ward (02901) in the Wairoa District.

Māori ward boundaries are defined at meshblock level.

If a regional council decides to have a Māori constituency, the constituencies within the council are known as general constituencies and Māori constituencies.

In the provisional 2020 classification two regional councils have Māori constituencies: Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

This dataset is the provisional 2020 dataset for Community Board. The final 2020 layer is scheduled to be published on 4 December 2019.

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 2019.

This dataset is the provisional set of community board boundaries for 2020 as defined by the territorial authorities and Local Government Commission but maintained by Stats NZ (the custodian). This version contains 109 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.
