Generally building bulk and scale is determined by the height, setback and overshadowing provisions of the relevant underlying zone. There will, however, be instances where it is appropriate for design features or building components that are integral to the function of that building (e.g., chimneys, balustrades, plant rooms, etc.) to breach these provisions where their dimensions are not considered to create adverse effects on the amenity of adjoining properties.
In addition there is also the need for the Plan to recognise the Port of Tauranga and Tauranga City Airport and ensure that the day-to-day operation of both these activities can continue as safely and efficiently as possible.
Where an intruding building component cannot comply with the dimensions specified in these provisions then its potential adverse effects will need to be assessed against the relevant provision of the underlying zone.
Amateur radio configurations do not come within the definition of Network Utilities and are not subject to the same rules. For clarity the provisions relating to amateur radio configurations in the Residential Zones and the Rural Residential Zone are set out as part of the permitted intrusions provisions of this Chapter.
