Community Board 2017 (generalised version)

This dataset is the definitive set of community board boundaries for 2017 as defined by the territorial authorities and Local Government Commission but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (the custodian).

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.
