Tauranga City Plan

4E  Purpose of Noise Provisions

Updated 2 December 2017

Noise is an environmental effect that has the potential to cause annoyance and affect health. It is often identified as a nuisance in the local environment and is a frequent cause of complaints, often related to reverse sensitivity.

Ambient noise levels vary across the City which is reflective of a varied built environment that includes an airport, port, strategic road infrastructure, rail networks and mix of residential, rural, commercial and industrial activities. Noise emission is an intrinsic part of the operation and function of these activities.

As these activities all generate their own noise levels, the Plan recognises and identifies the level of noise that is considered reasonably acceptable for the day-to-day operation of these activities for the zone in which they are located.
