Get on Tauranga's Access Map!

Tauranga City Councle stated its asporation in becoming New Zealands most accessible city by 2025. The councils Access Map is a big part of how we bring the cities resources together with local organisations and businesses to show their commitment to accessibility and inclusion.

About the Map

In October 2020, Tauranga City Council launched phase one of its Access Map. By using Access Maps, an Access Capture app provided by Tauranga, residents and visitors gained unparalleled accessibility information about our city's beaches, libraries, parks, and reserves.

Now, the City of Tauranga is embarking on the next phase of its accessible mapping journey by adding amenities (e.g., accessible parking spaces), events (e.g., basketball leagues), and local organizations to its map. In doing so, Tauranga City Council has partnered with Access Maps to make it easy for non-profits, businesses, community groups, and organizations in the region to access these same tools and put themselves on the map.

All it takes is 20 minutes and a simple subscription to put your organization on the map and provide an Access Page showcasing just how accessible your venue is.

Accessibility Overview App 

Accessibility Overview apps capture the accessibility of your venues and amenities. Data-collection tools are provided during the implementation phase, for all our partners. Each audit is time-stamped and geotagged to ensure accuracy and data integrity. Your information is reviewed and collated in accessibility reports: one for each location listed on your map. Our partners have ongoing access to these tools and reports, enabling continued accessibility monitoring, evaluation and improvement.
