I encourage everyone working in this space to review these documents, and suggest any changes or omissions either below, or directly to Bruce on the regulation subcommittee email@example.com.
Bruce and the rest of the sub-committee will be meeting the SG and other LINZ representatives towards the end of September to kick off consultation on the new rules. We need your feedback before then, otherwise the attached will form the basis of the ICS' approach. Bruce is especially after recommendations for X-Lease and Unit Titles Rules, as there is a bit of a dearth of experience on this department within the Institute.
We would also like to have a general discussion about the need for a rule regarding good survey practice, and how we might define this.

The Christchurch Cadastral Rules Review Workshop hosted by LINZ was held yesterday afternoon (20-Sep-2017).
Although I applaud LINZ 's general vision in their "Issues and Opportunities" paper, I was disappointed that the "workshop" was truncated to a few minutes of open floor discussion during Lyndon Telfer's presentation; a brief (~20min) break-out session in small groups; and then a quick 5-min round-up at the end.
Other than the necessary introduction by the Surveyor-General, the remainder time (~1hr) was an ASaTS presentation and a second Linking Property Data presentation. OK, these were interesting - but on reflection it was a wasted opportunity to tap in to the cadastral community to get a feeling for the real issues with respect to the Rules Review. (Although we probably needed a full day session to do it justice initially....!!)
What did other attendees at the Workshop's around the country think?
I guess we will have to trust the process, and wait for the submission stage and subsequent real consultation opportunities to present the case from a stakeholders point-of-view.....
