Map Gallery

Upper Hutt City Council maintains a collection of user-friendly Online Maps and Apps that are available to the general public. These maps are stored in a Map Gallery and include the Xplorer Viewer, Hazards Map, PC50 Issues & Opportunities Maps, an Arts and Heritage Tour and much more.

There are several Maps and Apps currently being developed including a Tracks Viewer and a Community Map. These will be added to the Map Gallery as they are published.

Our most frequently used online map – Xplorer allows users to search for properties in Upper Hutt and obtain information such as rates, consents, legal descriptions and underground services in relation to the property of interest. Users may also view the relevant District Planning Zones and/or Sub-Zones along with proposed plan changes. Please note that this version of Xplorer will soon be unsupported. Where possible, please use the Xplorer (New) map.

The new Xplorer will have all the same information as the existing version, but with more capabilities and improved performance. The new Xplorer can be accessed in the Map Gallery “New Xplorer (Public)”.
