Ward 2012 (clipped)

This dataset is the definitive set of ward boundaries at 1 January 2012 as defined by the territorial authorities and/or Local Government Commission, but maintained by Statistics New Zealand (who are the custodian). This version contains 258 categories.

Wards were originally set up within any territorial authority with a population of at least 20,000. Wards are defined under the Local Electoral Act 2001 and result from dividing a territorial authority for electoral purposes. Ward boundaries are reviewed in the year before the three-yearly local government elections.

This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.
