This depends on the land you have and what you need to do with it. However as a general guide the following steps feature in most subdivisions. We can help you with every step – all in house.
Drone surveys are very efficient in gathering large areas of topographical information quickly. However as drone surveys can only measure what it can see, this type of survey can yield errors if for example vegetation is long and if trees and buildings are in the way. Errors seen in certain data sets have been up to 300mm or more due to things like long grass. There are different accuracies between photogrammetry and lidar methodologies also.
However if high accuracy is what you need then hand held GPS rovers or total stations will get your accuracy down to 5-20mm. This will of course increase the time and cost to produce the data.
Once subdivision consent is issued an applicant has five years to lodge a Survey Plan with Council. This plan is a detailed plan prepared by a registered surveyor showing the boundaries, areas, and if relevant any easements and covenants that need to be prepared.
If the plan is in accordance with what was approved by Council as part of the subdivision consent then a Section 223 certificate approval will be signed. Once this has been signed by Council the plan may then be lodged with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) for approval.
