District Plan Maps

​To view the District Plan Maps select the correct map from the table.

For most sites in the District you will need to check two sets of maps:

  • For properties in urban areas you will need to check the relevant Urban and Urban Features Maps.
  • For properties in rural areas you will need to check the relevant Rural and Rural Features Maps.

The Urban and Rural Maps show  information such as the zoning of the site, designations, heritage features, etc.  The Urban Features and Rural Features Maps show the Outstanding Natural Features and Landscapes, 1,000m buffer around State Highway 47 (National Park to Turangi), etc.

The planning maps are separated out into four different types for ease of use, each map covers different parts of the district and show different information at the most appropriate scale. As with the District Plan text, these maps are updated from time to time (as a result of plan changes and appeal settlements) so if you print out these maps, you may wish to check the date at the bottom of each map to ensure you are using the most up-to-date map. For clarification please contact Council.
