Colours for buildings within the Waikato Coastal Zone

The proposed Waikato District Plan recognises the natural character of the coastal environment as a matter of national importance.

Most buildings in the Coastal Zone require resource consent as a Controlled Activity, with control reserved over:

  • Building form, bulk, location, external cladding and colour
  • Natural character of the coastal environment including wild and scenic values
  • Amenity and landscape values

Such controls are designed to maintain the natural character and amenity of the coastal environment.

The exterior colour of new buildings (and alterations to existing buildings) is an important consideration for the Coastal Zone environment. Colours that are sympathetic with, and complementary to, the coastal environment are deemed appropriate for this zone.

The following Resene colours identify acceptable colours for the Coastal Zone of the Waikato District.

Should you wish to discuss the coastal zone requirements any further please contact the Duty Planner at Waikato District Council.
