The current Single Land Cadastre project, a joint initiative of the Lands Department and Sydney Water, should result in a ‘harmonised’ cadastre being developed, with the cadastre for the remaining part of the state being similarly progressively upgraded/updated to take into account those Local Government cadastres in regional areas. DATA USED BY UTILITIES The top ten datasets used by Power, Water, Gas and Telecommunications Utilities are shown in the table below. Utilities are the only industry sector who universally rate the cadastre as being 100% important to their business operations, unlike State Governments who rate the cadastre as being only 70% important to their business.
