HASTINGS CBD HERITAGE INVENTORY PROJECT

The Hastings CBD Heritage Inventory Project was begun in 2004 with the aim of providing information on the history and heritage of a large number of buildings in the Hastings CBD. The project covers 115 buildings, some of which make up a group. This has resulted in the preparation of 89 reports for individual buildings or groups of buildings that contribute to the unique history and architecture of the Hastings CBD.

RURAL PROPERTY NUMBERING

Rural properties are identified using a standard numbering system called RAPID—Rural Address Property Identification System.

The major benefit of RAPID numbering is that it saves time locating properties and occupants - especially for emergency services (ambulance, fire service, police).
