The Tauranga City Council is the local authority responsible for administering the district plan for Tauranga. The list of local services that the council looks after is truly amazing. These range from the mundane such as busking laws and graffiti removal to major services like roads and running the Tauranga Airport.
The Tauranga Council administers all the local utility services such as water, rubbish collection and recycling. If you are building a house or renovating then you’ll need to contact the council for building and resource consents. LIM reports are also issued by the Tauranga City Council. There are also several other regional councils in the Bay of Plenty.
General land rates and property valuations are a big part of the councils operation. Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty is one of the fastest growing regions of New Zealand and this requires constant planning to accommodate services for all residents. Major events are often run, or sponsored by the council including the Tauranga Jazz Festival.
