Cultural Heritage Inventory

What is the Cultural Heritage Inventory? (CHI)

The CHI is a computer database containing information on over 20,000 heritage places, including:

  • archaeological and maritime sites
  • built and botanical heritage areas and places
  • sites of significance to mana whenua.

It is used to store and retrieve information on heritage places in the Auckland region, and is divided into two sections:

  • places – includes information on individual historic heritage places
  • bibliography – includes reference material such as reports, assessments and surveys.

The CHI does not grant formal protection to heritage places.
