District Plan Hauraki Gulf Islands Section - Proposed 2006
(Notified version 2006)
Both plans have three primary components:
The written text should be read as a whole so that the common themes of the Plan and the relationship between the various chapters can be understood. There is a significant amount of cross-referencing in the text in order that repetition is avoided where possible. The most common form of navigating this site is:
The proposed plan text is available in PDF and HTML formats. The HTML version contains links within the parts of the text, links between the parts of the text and links from Map 1 of each map in the map grid.
The maps grid is detailed in the overview diagram. Click the appropriate area to be linked to the appropriate planning map.
In the operative plan, the inner island maps contain all information on one map. There are no maps available for the outer islands.
In the proposed plan, there are maps for both the inner and outer islands. The maps for the outer islands have an aerial base, whereas the inner maps do not. There are two maps for each area - one showing the land unit or settlement area information which links to the text through the legend, and one showing additional limitations which links to the text and/or appendices through the sites. To reach the appendices this way hold the cursor over the selected site and double click.
The full Hauraki Gulf Islands' street index will provide links to Planning Map 1 of the applicable map sheet.
If you are looking for the quickest way around this Plan, use the navigation links at the top of the page to take you directly to the streets, maps, text, appendices and annexures pages. We also would appreciate any feedback you may have.
The map images are fairly large (up to 790k) to show enough detail to make them readable on a computer screen, helping users be able to identify correct roads, properties and city features. The map quality and readability was traded for size and loading speed, particularly for people viewing this over an internet connection.
