How do you know if your Auckland property is in a protected Volcanic View Shaft?

Did you know that building heights in Auckland may be subject to restrictions under the Volcanic View Shafts rules from Auckland Council?

Auckland Council protects significant views of Auckland’s volcanic cones by using viewshafts and setting height restrictions in sensitive areas.  But how do you know if your property is in a Volcanic View Shaft?

Our surveyors can provide 3D DWG volcanic cone projections for inclusion in design and feasibility proposals.  We have land information that is not available in the public realm and can deliver certified definitions.

Auckland Council’s website has more information on volcanic view shaft zones, these links may be helpful:
