This dataset represents the terrestrial distribution of Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus cuniculus) in Northland as at 1 July 2007. It represents this species' final layer as part of the Natural Heritage Management Strategy of the Department of Conservation.

Spatial and textual data were collected at the Area level by Department of Conservation Area Office and Conservancy Office staff. Polygons representing the distribution were hand-drawn onto LINZ 260 series topo maps at the 1:250,000 scale. Digitisation of the hand-drawn maps was contracted to Geographx (NZ) Limited.

Freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers were clipped from the layer to represent species absence. Further digitisation work was carried out by the DOC R&D GIS team in Christchurch to re-define selected polygons by species specific distribution drivers; i.e. altitude and habitat guided by LCBD 2. The attribute table may contain references to quantitative datasets of species abundance (where such datasets exist).

For full explanation of data collection methodology see DOCDM-186114.

RPS - Outstanding Natural Features - Council Decision October 2013 Version

The Regional Policy Statement is one of the most important planning tools for Northland. It sets out how our natural and physical resources should be managed into the future – from the mountains to the sea and for the benefit of all Northlanders.

The new Regional Policy Statement will underpin the integrated management of our resources (land, water, air, soil, minerals, energy, all plants and animals, and all structures). This means considering the environment as a whole and recognising that changes, or the effects of human activities, in one area or on one resource, can affect other resources.

It will provide for the wellbeing of our people and economic development while sustainably managing our resources for future generations. It will also impact how people, businesses and industry use, develop and protect Northland’s resources and it will influence future district and regional plans.

Every regional council is required under the Resource Management Act to have a Regional Policy Statement in place at all times.

In Northland it covers the management of natural and physical resources throughout the region, from Kaiwaka in the south, to Cape Reinga in the north, and out to the 12 nautical mile (22.2 km) limit.

Part of the Proposed Regional Policy Statement is a set of proposed maps that show Northland’s ‘outstanding’ areas and ‘coastal environment’.

These maps have been developed to meet requirements under the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement 2010 and the Resource Management Act 1991.

Further information on our website

Outstanding natural features are areas are throughout the region and tend to be unique geological features such as fossil beds or distinctive rock outcrops. They are usually quite small and can often form part of an outstanding natural landscape. An example is the Hole in the Rock.

Natural character areas are areas within the ‘coastal environment’ (see below) that are in a highly natural state with little impact from humans or pest plants and animals. We are identifying two levels of natural character areas – high and outstanding. An example of an outstanding natural character area is Bream Head.
