LINZ provide the Electoral Street Address database, which provides
house number, road name, locality and territorial authority. 200MB
download and highly accurate*.
*at least I've never seen something out of place. It kinda has to be
accurate doesn't it?

Trying to find a php / ajax / json or similar method of doing an auto

you start typing an address like "92 albert str" google will complete the

home address and it came up as North Shore, rather than Greenhithe, so
wondering if there is a NZ database that's inexpensive or free that is
The address data is not being used for commercial use, rather for emergency
services, when someone calls 111, the emergency services will have an
address associated with the phone number of the A Party. I've emailed
Terralink (who the NZ Police use) so will see what they come back with but
would appreciate any other suggestions, off-list is fine.
