A new ePlan format of the Operative City Plan was launched on 17 August 2022 to replace the Hardcopy/PDF format (which we will no longer be updating)
Part A – Objectives, Polices and Rules – Seal Affixed (55kb pdf)
Table of Plan Change Dates for City Plan (51kb pdf)
There are two ways in which you can view City Plan map information on our website: our online viewer Mapi, and pdf versions of the planning maps.
Mapi is a user-friendly online tool that enables you to search for property information, other information about the land and area (e.g. natural hazards) and view current and historic aerials. It allows you to interact with the maps online using layers to present the wealth of information that council holds about the land, infrastructure and built form in Tauranga.
Along the top tool bar you can search a property, use the 'show layer list' to select the Tauranga City Plan layer and 'show legend' which shows the colours of each zone and patterns for the overlays.
Using Mapi you can annotate and share a map, search for data, zoom to specific features and print reports.

Sections 4 to 7 provide more detailed thematic information for specific areas:
Part B - Plan Maps - Seal Affixed (95kb pdf)
