Township - New Zealand

New Zealand

In local government in New Zealand there are no longer towns or townships. All land is part of either a "city" (mostly urban) or a "district" (mostly rural). The term "municipality" has become rare in New Zealand since about 1979 and has no legal status.

The term "township" is however still in common usage in New Zealand in reference to a small town or urban community located in a rural area. The expression would generally equate to that of "village" in England.
