Wind Zones

Central Otago District Council does not hold wind zone hazard information for properties.

Our building and planning teams do not have access to information that can assist with determining the wind zone.

A wind zone assessment is site specific and involves factors such as the proximity to open terrain, topography of the surrounding land and any sheltering offered by permanent obstructions at the same ground level. Property owners are advised to seek the services of a suitably qualified design practitioner for their site-specific wind zone assessment.

The following links may be useful in assisting you to determine the wind zone on a property in our region, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information.
