This layer provides provide all address points in the LINZ Electoral subsystem that are, or may be, used by electors.
The addresses often represent only the principal addresses assigned by Territorial Authorities, and seldom include addresses assigned to individual flats, or addresses that differ from those which have been officially assigned. The Electoral process occasionally further aggregates addresses into ranges, especially where there are many addresses for a single parcel.
The road name associated with an address is sourced from the road centrelines.
The location is a place name used by Electoral processes to ensure that each address number/road combination can be uniquely identified.
When LINZ adds or modifies the location of an address point the mandatory priority is to locate that address point within the correct meshblock. The location of the front door of an electors’ dwelling within the correct meshblock is a fundamental requirement of the electoral system (Section 72 Electoral Act 1993).
Highly desirable priorities for the location of an address point are to have it in the same property and parcel as the dwelling and on the correct side of the physical and legal roads. It is also a desirable priority to have the address point in the same location as the dwelling and/or at the location of the property entrance
Associated place names may not be an officially recorded or allocated places but will commonly be a recognizable suburb or place that enables the elimination of road name ambiguity or enables unique identification where road names are duplicated.
