Tauranga City Plan

12C  Subdivision in the Rural Residential Zone

Updated 12 March 2016

The Rural Residential Zone provides part of the range of residential opportunities within the City. Land zoned rural residential is considered unsuitable for conventional urban development principally due to its topography, and this is reflected in the minimum lot size requirements in this zone. The anticipated low intensity development of this zone also makes the provision of services economically unsustainable. Although this zone provides for residential living, it is not the intention that it become a stepping stone to full suburban or urban development and the expected level of services reinforces this approach.

The location of the Rural Residential Zone on the periphery of the City’s suburban area provides a visual backdrop to urban areas. As such there is a requirement for subdivisions to provide visual assessments that consider the sensitivity of the environment and look at opportunities to mitigate the impacts of future development.
