Infrastructure Development Code

GEN-1.1 Philosophy

PreviousNext

The philosophy underpinning the Infrastructure Development Code (IDC) is for it to:

  1. Maximise the efficient use of infrastructural resources to ensure that any infrastructural development work in Tauranga City is constructed to an appropriate long term, cost effective and singular set of standards and specifications.
  2. Provide for appropriate and safe geotechnical outcomes.
  3. Provide a means of compliance to achieve the requirements set by:
    1. The Tauranga City Plan.
    2. The conditions of a Resource Consent.
    3. Council Bylaws.
    4. Statutory requirements such as those listed in GEN-1.5 Statutory Requirements.
  4. Consider the effect on, expertise and knowledge of all infrastructure development co-stakeholders.
  5. Provide a means for alternative / innovative design and construction to be considered. 
  6. Provide context and support to urban design.  
  7. Provide for infrastructure that meets its required design / asset life, function and therefore deliver the agreed level of service to the community at the agreed operation costs.
  8. Provide an environment for infrastructure development to be undertaken holistically rather than solely being an engineering only document.
  9. Be a "living" document that is easily updated as standards, construction methods, technology or materials change as well as respond to matters amended in the City Plan via plan change processes or similar.
  10. Provide for consistency in decision making, promote collaboration and communication among the infrastructure and land development industry.
