14C.1 Objectives and Policies for the Urban Marae Community Zone and the Ngati Kahu Papakainga Zone

Updated 11 September 2018

14C.1.1 Objective - Urban Marae Community Zones and the Ngati Kahu Papakainga Zone 

  1. To recognise and provide for the use and development of marae that meet the evolving needs of their iwi, hapu and whanau
  2. To enable tangata whenua to have opportunities to exercise kaitiakitanga over marae resources in their respective hapu areas. 

14C.1.1.1 Policy - Urban Marae Community Zone and the Ngati Kahu Papakainga Zone

By applying a zone to existing urban marae which:

  1. Recognises marae as a focus and integral component of kainga; 
  2. Permits the establishment of education, health, social service, recreation and housing facilities and home-based businesses, as well as facilities associated with more traditional marae uses where these comply to permitted activity conditions, including development thresholds. 

14C.1.2 Objective - Site Layout and Building Design – Urban Marae Community Zone

Development within the zone provides for a cultural mix of activities within the marae, but is still compatible with the existing and anticipated suburban residential character and amenity of the surrounding neighbourhood, characterised by space around buildings, on-site open space, provision of sunlight and privacy.

14C.1.2.1 Policy – Site and Building Design – Urban Marae Community Zone 

By ensuring the layout and design of development: 

  1. Provides building setbacks between sites that ensure a physical separation of buildings between sites, access for building maintenance, and contribution to the visual and aural privacy of adjoining sites
  2. Ensures that buildings are setback from the road boundary to provide a consistent streetscape that provides opportunities for landscape planting and encourages passive surveillance of the road; 
  3. Cumulatively contributes to the overall open nature of the surrounding neighbourhood. 

14C.1.3 Objective - Site Layout and Building Design – Ngati Kahu Papakainga Zone

Development within the Ngati Kahu Papakainga Zone provides for a cultural mix of activities within the marae, including the Commercial (Waewae) Zone, but is still compatible with the existing and anticipated suburban residential character and amenity of the surrounding neighbourhood characterised by space around buildings, on-site open space, provision of sunlight and privacy. Areas of the zone reserved for recreation and conservation are maintained largely as open space, and building and development in these areas is minimal.

14C.1.3.1 Policy – Site and Building Design – Ngati Kahu Papakainga Zone

By ensuring the layout and design of development:

  1. Provides building setbacks between sites that ensure a physical separation of buildings between sites, access for building maintenance, and contribution to the visual and aural privacy of adjoining sites
  2. Ensures that buildings are setback from the road boundary to provide a consistent streetscape that provides opportunities for landscape planting and encourages passive surveillance of the road; 
  3. Cumulatively contributes to the overall open nature of the surrounding neighbourhood.
