The Surveyor-General has invited all Canterbury Licensed Cadastral Surveyors to an update on the work LINZ is doing in response to the Canterbury earthquake affected cadastre this Wednesday 18 February at the Silks Lounge in the Metropolitan Stand at the Addington Raceway from 4pm to 6pm.
NZIS and LINZ are taking a collaborative approach with this initiative and a Canterbury Branch Working Group has been established and is working with LINZ.
NZIS is aware there has been some discussion of bringing clients such as insurers to the meeting on Wednesday, however the Surveyor-General's intent is for this meeting to be just for Licensed Cadastral Surveyors to have a discussion about the technical and professional issues related to the proposed guidance. LINZ is working with other key stakeholders, including insurers, separately and will share details of this.
Members will appreciate the need to work quickly on this and are encouraged to attend this meeting if at all possible.
