This dataset was first added to LINZ Data Service on 12 Mar 2021.

This dataset is to be used in conjunction with the Fire and Emergency NZ Localities dataset to identify and provide official locality names where a name exists in the New Zealand Gazetteer.

The Fire and Emergency NZ Localities dataset currently contains many names that are not the official names for those features, suburbs or localities.
The New Zealand Geographic Board (Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa) Act 2008, Section 32 requires all official documents to identify names which are not the official place names as recorded in the New Zealand Gazetteer. As such this table identifies locality names and the matching official name where an official name in the Gazetteer exists, but Locality name differs from it.
It does not take into account any differences in Locality boundaries and the boundary definition of place names in the Gazetteer.
This table is a best endeavour and not comprehensive, but will improve over time.
