This series contains a set of folders of subdivision applications created by the Wanganui City Council in the course of their contract work for other councils.

It was common in the 1970s and 1980s for smaller councils to contract required expertise from companies or other larger councils. The Wanganui City Council offered Town Planning support services to numerous councils, including Marton Borough, Rangitikei County and Ohakune Borough. These folders contain subdivision applications forwarded to the Wanganui City Council for Town Planning advice by those councils.

Following the 1989 amalgamations the folders were inherited by the Ruapehu District Council, although a number of the applications contained are for properties outside that District.

The files were originally stored in ring binders, but in 2016 were rehoused into codafile folders. Copies of the spines of the original ring binders have been placed on file for reference purposes.
