A note about wind hazard: 

The dataset of wind zones for Upper Hutt is indicative only, and has not recently received an update or review. Therefore, independent assessments are highly suggested by our building team, as every site is different.    

We do not display this dataset in our public map viewers such as Xplorer or our Natural Hazards Map. However, a map of wind zones for Upper Hutt is available for download via the link below:
