Preservation of Surveying Infrastructure (POSI) resource pack

The unplanned destruction of Cadastral Marks and State Control has a devastating effect on the cadastral and spatial fabric of the State. Destruction can occur through new infrastructure developments, maintenance works and utility activities. It is important that processes are in place to:

  • identify and protect the marks; and
  • ensure that any destruction is planned, approved and controlled, otherwise fines can occur.

To assist the process, Roads and Maritime Services Surveyors and Land and Property Information Representatives have been collaborating to develop systems to better manage the process. The following documents are an interim measure and will assist in the preservation of the cadastre and the State Control network.



Following a recent state government restructure, the Land and Property Information Representatives are now located in the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) – Spatial Services Division.

It is likely that this information will be incorporated in the revision of several technical documents in the near future. If you have any queries, please contact:
