The map we have on https://www.educationcounts.govt.nz/ is missing new sub divisions, and doesn't show house numbers:

https://www.educationcounts.govt.nz/find-an-els/els/profile-and-contact-details?region=2&district=7620&area=523920&ece=47764

But on the OpenStreetMaps site, it does show new sub divisions and has house numbers:

https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/-37.03841/174.90679

Can you please advise how to go about having up to date maps with house numbers?

The mapping on your site is served by Mapbox, who take OpenStreetMap data and resell it. You should contact them and ask them when they'll use the latest OSM data.

Some of the missing buildings were mapped a year ago (https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/613055043), I'm surprised that Mapbox serves data that old.

MapBox stopped updating OSM data a long time ago. I think they never officially stated why. See https://twitter.com/Anonymaps/status/913812009547902978 . Better switch to a different tile provider. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Commercial_OSM_Software_and_Services for alternatives.
