This layer provides the current non-primary parcel polygons (e.g. easements) and some associated descriptive data that details the appellation (legal description), purpose, and size.
A non-primary parcel is a portion of land that that essentially enables the transfer of some rights to another i.e. usually limits the exclusive rights that would normally be associated with a primary parcel.
Non primary parcels include the following examples:
• an easement, including an esplanade strip or an access strip
• a covenant
• a lease or an area associated with a lease
• a licence or a permit area
• a unit or common property for the purposes if the Unit Titles Act 1972
• a moveable marginal strip
• a roadway or a restricted roadway that is an encumbrance over a primary parcel
If you require approved or historic parcels see the All Parcels Layer
This layer has a nominal accuracy of 0.1-1m in urban areas and 1-100m in rural areas. For more detailed information about parcel accuracies please refer to the Survey Boundary Marks layer which contains accuracies for each parcel node.
The combination of this layer with the primary parcels layer provides all spatially available current parcels for New Zealand (i.e. excludes historic and pending parcels and non-primary parcels that have not been spatially captured in Landonline).
The originating data for parcel/title associations includes some non-official sources where the official data does not support a link. For more information see
