Tools to help you

LUC tool

Land Use Capability Classification is a system that classifies all of New Zealand’s rural land into one of eight classes, based on its physical characteristics and attributes. Class 1 land is the most versatile and can be used for a wide range of land uses. Class 8 land has a lot of physical limitations, it may be extremely steep, and not generally suitable for arable, pastoral or commercial forestry use.

You can find out what LUC categories you have on your property with the HBRC mapping tool.
