**Please read:** The AIMS: Addressable Object table is part of the [set of comprehensive AIMS Address tables](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/87).
An addressable object is the object the address is assigned to. This could be a parcel, building or unit. Parcel will be used as the Addressable Object initially. Over time LINZ will more accurately implement the addressableobject, for example using rating unit and building information. The Addressable Object table contains information describing the type of addressable object and its life-cycle, as well as the organisation responsible for assigning the addressable object. More information relating to Addressable Object is available in the Address data dictionary.
The comprehensive address dataset includes eight data tables and nine lookup tables. The dataset has been sourced from LINZ’s Address Information Management System (AIMS), a centralised database for the management of national addresses, including for electoral purposes. This set of normalised tables replaces the single Landonline: Street Address layer currently published on LDS.
This layer contains information advised to LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). [Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319)](http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1974/0066/latest/DLM420385.html) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise LINZ (the Surveyor General) of all allocated addresses in their district.
For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see [NZ Street Address](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3353).
Please refer to the [Street Address Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/1627) for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
