Infrastructure Development Code

GEN-5.1 General


The Infrastructure Development Code (IDC) forms part of the quality assurance mechanisms for infrastructure development in Tauranga City. 

The IDC is a policy document prepared and managed in accordance with the Local Government Act 2002.

The IDC sits outside the City Plan. It will be used for the development of quality assets by the Tauranga City Council (Capital Works) and may be used by Resource Consent applicants as a mechanism for satisfying some requirements of the City Plan (Development Works).

The purpose of this section of the IDC is to ensure that:

  1. Amendments to the IDC are undertaken openly and regularly.
  2. Decision making is undertaken in accordance with Part 6 of the Local Government Act 2002.
  3. The IDC is published and maintained as a controlled document.

GEN-5.1.1 Management of the IDC

Responsibility for the management of the IDC is delegated to the Manager: Asset and Infrastructure Planning. The Manager: Asset and Infrastructure Planning will maintain a master copy of the IDC, a table of amendments and is delegated authority and responsibility to perform the following tasks:

  1. Upon receipt or initiation of a proposed amendment (from internal or external parties), determine what type of amendment it is and consequently, which amendment process (detailed in Gen-5.2 below) will be followed.
  2. Determine what level of consultation (if any) is required in respect of any proposed amendments in accordance with the amendment process being followed for the type of amendment.
  3. Once the decision on the proposed amendment has been made by the relevant decision-maker, to publish that decision, make the amendment to the IDC and update the Table of Amendments.
