Groundwater Allocation Zones

Intended UseThe Groundwater Allocation Zones layer collates zones for regulating groundwater use as defined in the Canterbury Land and Water Regional Plan (LWRP) and various regional plans. This includes groundwater allocation zones, groundwater management zones, and combined surface water and groundwater zones. Layers were digitised to cadastral accuracy (1:10,000 scale), but recommended use is at the 1:50,000 scale or smaller.For further information on plans and associated planning boundaries, please visit and Attribute InformationSpatial IDs: ObjectID, GeoPK, GeoCat, GeoIDZone Names: Zone Name, LabelPlan NameLWRP - Canterbury Land and Water Regional PlanHWRRP - Hurunui and Waiau River Regional PlanPCEFWARP - Pareora Catchment Environmental Flow and Water Allocation Regional PlanWCEFWARP - Waipara Catchment Environmental Flow and Water Allocation Regional PlanWCWARP - Waitaki Catchment Water Allocation Regional PlanZone StatusOperative - operative plan holding legal bearingProposed-Notified - publicly notified proposed planProposed-Decision - hearing decision version of the proposed planZone TypeGroundwater Allocation Zone - plan applies groundwater allocation limitsGroundwater Management Zone - plan applies allocation and quality limits to Christchurch Groundwater Protection ZoneCombined Allocation Zone - plan applies allocation limits to both surface water and groundwaterNo Groundwater Allocation Zone - aggregate of areas not yet assigned groundwater allocation zonesGIS Metadata Fields: Sourcecode, QARCode, CreatedBy, CreatedDate, ModifiedBy, ModifiedDateGIS Shape Fields: Perimeter_M, Area_M2, Area_HA, Shape, Shape.STArea(), Shape.STLength()
