Waikato District Plan


The Waikato District Plan gives guidance as to what you can do with your land, for example, whether you can subdivide your property and where you can site a building. It also protects our cultural heritage and our environment by identifying Maaori sites of significance, heritage buildings and significant natural areas.

It is reviewed every 10 years and is a statutory document developed under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).
