Naming Policy

This policy applies to the naming of streets, reserves, community facilities and other public places in Tauranga.  The naming of streets, reserves, community facilities and other public places should recognise and maintain local identity. 

Encouraging the use of Māori names contributes to the visibility of Tauranga’s Māori identity and heritage.  Council will work alongside the New Zealand Geographic Board on any proposal to confirm or amend suburb or other location names in Tauranga.

Please take some time to look at the policy attached below – we appreciate your feedback.
