Waipa District Plan


​Material incorporated by reference

The Operative Waipa District Plan occasionally refers to publications that act as a measure to help applicants comply with rules or provisions in the plan. These publications are known as 'material incorporated by reference'. You can view the publications either at the Te Awamutu or Cambridge Office, or you can request a copy of the material incorporated by reference (with the exception of standards) by calling 0800 924 723. 

Council is unable to provide copies of standards (New Zealand and international) due to matters of copyright. These must be obtained directly from the source: http://www.standards.co.nz/default.htm

Volume 3 - Planning Maps

Please note: There may be differences visible between the parcel boundaries in PDF format and paper maps, versus Maps Online and District Plan Snapshot:

  • The Waipa District Plan maps in PDF format and the paper version, show parcel boundaries as at the date displayed in the map title area.
  • If the Waipa District Plan is viewed via Maps Online or accessed via the District Plan Snapshot the parcel boundaries are updated monthly, and therefore more current.
