Rotorua Land Use Directory
Over the past 20 years, land users and the general public throughout New Zealand have become increasingly aware of the sensitive and complex nature of the environment in which we live.
The Rotorua Land Use Directory – Tahuri Whenua is a guide to help land users in the Lake Rotorua catchment evaluate other land use options that may be available to them. The directory has been published as this website and as a book which is freely available at Bay of Plenty Regional Council offices and local Rotorua libraries. The book is also available as a pdf download here. (11MB).
The website contains all the information that is in the hardcopy directory, along with access to the sources of information and other resources.
