ePlan gives you complete access to Environment Canterbury Regional Plans and Bylaws. There is a lot more functionality than a basic PDF and makes navigating the plans much easier.
The main features are:
- Links to particular provisions
Links to provisions appear as blue text. Clicking on these will take you straight to the particular part of the plan you are looking for.
- Links to map features and external web pages
Links to map features and external web pages also appear in blue text. Clicking on these takes you to a new page.
Map links take you to the ePlan map viewer and load the map feature you clicked on. Some features will auto zoom while others may require you to zoom in manually to view. You can also zoom into a particular property, or use Property Search to check whether the relevant feature is mapped to any particular address or property.
For example, clicking on the archaeological sites link opens the feature below in the ePlan map viewer. You can return to the plan by clicking ‘Back’ on your web browser.
Links to definitions appear with a dotted underline. Clicking on these links opens the definition panel on the left-hand side of the viewer:
