These maps form the second volume of the District Plan and are arranged in pairs, one called Environments and one called Resource Areas.
Each map in the pair covers the same geographical area.
- Resource Areas show areas that are specially managed for various reasons
- Environments (formerly called zones) show the areas that the District is divided into. Every part of the District is in an Environment
The Environments maps also show:
- road hierarchy
- indicative roads
- scheduled activities and overlay maps where deviations to the plan are identified.
In addition Coastal Areas have a third Coastal Map Series which show the Coastal Area, Outstanding Natural Character Area and the High Natural Character Area.
Airport approach paths (Designation DW 125) are mapped in greater detail in Chapter 85 of the District Plan text (found in Part C).
