RAPID numbers

A Rural Address Property Identification (RAPID) is an identification number assigned to any rural property in the district. 

The system is based on the distance to a property entrance from a clearly defined reference point, usually the beginning of the road on which it is located.

How are RAPID numbers used?

As RAPID numbers are allocated, this information is sent to Landonline, Land Information New Zealand’s national property database. A RAPID number helps emergency services and the public find your property. Many rural property owners include their RAPID number on their postal address.
