For planning purposes, a property may be 'designated' for a specific purpose. Designations allow a 'requiring authority', such as a Government Minister or a utility company, to use a property for a particular activity or range of activities. Those activities do not need to comply with the rules of the zone in which the property is located. However, there may be conditions that limit those activities. The airport, railways and roading are typical examples of designations.

For any information on current designations, please contact the Resource Consent Team.
