Yesterday Glen Clarkin, Western Bay of Plenty Regional Council and Sarah Cowell, Statistics New Zealand gave an update on the LGGA Building Consents project at the Esri Conference.
The aim of the project is to create an open, national spatial dataset of Building Consent data.
This dataset will be coordinated by Statistics NZ and ultimately used in their monthly statistical reporting.
In creating this national dataset we aim to identify efficiencies and opportunities to standardise our data for both local government and Statistics NZ.
More recently LGGA have started working with the GoShift team to coordinate our approach with Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
Check out the Building Consents User Guide for details on how to improve your data supply to Statistics New Zealand
For an overview of the project see the LGGA Building Consents blog page.
