Colour requirements for building in the settlement
areas on Great Barrier Island (notified on 17 September 2006)
As part of the plan one of the key features for Great Barrier Island settlements is a rule which is a permitted standard for colour. It replaces the existing consideration of colour as part of a resource consent process. The purpose of this is to avoid adverse visual effects on the landscape resulting from dominant bright or light colours.
These colour requirements also apply to various zones on Waiheke Island and Rakino Island (particularly coastal and bush clad areas).
After analysis there were considered to be two main factors that contribute to adverse effects from dominant finishes on buildings. These are the reflectivity and the greyness content of the finish. The rule allows flexibility with hue, so long as the colour has a reasonably heavy weight to it.
The permitted standard uses an A-E greyness grading system based on the British Standard BS5252:1976 - Framework for Colour Co-ordination for Building Purposes, combined with different levels of reflectivity.
The following are permitted activities in all settlement areas:
Provided that ( 2. ) does not apply to windows, window frames, bargeboards, stormwater guttering, downpipes or doors. These items may be of any colour.
