Additional security measures

We are aware that some customers are having issues making payments online. This is due to Visa and Mastercard now enforcing two-factor authentication on all payments in order to increase security.

If you are having issues making an online payment, please contact your bank.

  1. Your name, address, telephone and email address.
  2. The plan change number and details of the provisions to which the submission is being made.
  3. Whether you support or oppose the plan change provisions, in whole or in part.
  4. Reasons for your support or opposition.
  5. The decision you wish Tauranga City Council to make.
  6. Whether you wish to be heard in support of your submission.
  7. Whether or not you could gain advantage in trade competition through your submission.
