Tauranga City Plan

13A.3 Purpose of the Conservation Zone

Updated 4 November 2014

The Conservation Zone primarily applies to open space that borders on the harbour and coastal margins of the City or has significant cultural and heritage, landscape or ecological values whether held in public ownership or private landholdings. Conservation zoned land is valued for its natural character, ecological, landscape, open spaces and, in certain circumstances, its cultural and heritage values.

The use of these areas generally does not require buildings or structures to be developed on them, and an overall intent of this Zone is to keep such areas in an unbuilt or natural state. Most Conservation Zone areas are vegetated and valued for their ecological and recreational value. Priority is given to the protection of these values and the maintenance and enhancement of the natural character, landscape character, cultural and heritage, ecological and conservation values
