QA-1.5 Compliation of the Report

PreviousNext

The Development Completion Report is compiled by the Consent Holder's Representative

In compiling the report, the Consent Holder's Representative may need to utilise the input from a Geo-Professional (for Geotechnical Hazards) and / or a SQE Professional (for Other Hazards or land / infrastructure development disciplines).

QA-1.5.1   Geotechnical Assessment Report

Where geotechnical hazards are present, either on the development property or on an adjacent property which may affect the development property, an assessment shall be undertaken of the issues by a Geo-Professional. The assessment will provide solutions to be implemented to avoid, remedy or mitigate the issues associated with the geotechnical hazards and to ensure nominated building platforms are yielded. Good industry and risk management practice shall be adopted when compiling the assessment and the associated solutions requiring implementation.

Explanatory Note:
DS-10 - Appendix E Assessment and Reporting provides the Geo-Professional with some guidelines and checklists that may provide assistance when undertaking landform assessment. Where the guidelines provide no direction, accepted industry practice shall be utilised.

QA-1.5.1.1  Exceptions

Where no geotechnical hazards are present, the Geotechnical Assessment Report will be the Geotechnical Completion Report. Refer to QA-5.4.2 Geotechnical Completion Report.

QA-1.5.2  Other Hazards Assessment Report

Where Other Hazards are present, either on the development property or on an adjacent property which may affect the development property, an assessment is undertaken of the associated issues by a SQE Professional. The assessment will provide solutions to be implemented that avoid, remedy or mitigate the issues associated with the natural hazards to yield nominated building platforms that have avoided, remedied or mitigated the risks associated with the Other Hazards. Good Industry and risk management practice shall be adopted when compiling the assessment and the associated solutions requiring implementation. 

Explanatory Note:
DS-10 - Appendix E Assessment and Reporting provides the Geo-Professional with some guidelines and checklists that may provide assistance when undertaking landform assessment. Where the guidelines provide no direction, accepted industry practice shall be utilised.

QA-1.5.2.1  Exceptions

Where no Other Hazards are present, the Other Hazard Assessment Report will be the Other Hazards Completion Report. Refer to QA-5.4.3 Other Hazard Completion Reports.

QA-1.5.3  Off-Site Effects Assessment Report

An assessment of the volume and point(s) of discharge for the pre and post-development stormwater runoff effects shall be undertaken by a SQE Professional.  The assessment shall propose solutions to manage the effects where the post-development stormwater runoff exceeds the pre-development scenario or where the points of discharge for the proposed development have been altered and may cause adverse effect on the adjoining property. 

The assessment shall also include a statement from the SQE Professional confirming that the off-site runoff for the completed development will be less than or equal to the pre-development stormwater runoff scenario. The assessment will identify all existing and/or proposed points of discharge for the development.

Where off-site effects were considered as part of an application to the Bay of Plenty Regional Council, then a copy of the consent can be provided to cover this.

QA-1.5.3.1  Exceptions

Where no off-site effects are present, the Off-Site Effects Assessment Report will be the Off-Site Effects Completion Report. Refer to QA-5.4.4 Off-Site Effects Completion Report.

QA-1.5.4  Infrastructure Development Assessment Report

An assessment shall be provided to show how each lot will be serviced for:

  1. Wastewater.
  2. Water Supply and fire fighting including confirmation that the nominated building platform and point of supply for each lot is located within the water supply pressure zone and will provide the required residual pressure for both supply and fire fighting requirements. 
  3. Stormwater disposal including that where the property is noted as "specific design" for stormwater disposal, then a storm water disposal report shall be supplied detailing the proposed method of disposal. The report shall be compiled by a SQE Professional and shall address the matters referenced in DS-5 Stormwater, the NZ Building Code and takes into account overland flowpaths required when the soakage system is over capacity during a storm event.
  4. Streetscape/reserve requirements (Type 2 Process only).
  5. Transportation infrastructure (Type 2 Process only).
  6. Vehicle/pedestrian access.
  7. Broadband (Type 2 Process only and if required by City Plan).
  8. Power.
  9. Telecommunications.
  10. Public Lighting and Landscaping Plan (Type 2 process only).
  11. Capacity of existing infrastructure including confirmation that the existing infrastructure networks have the capacity to cater for the proposed development. Where this is an issue, provide a solution(s) as how to remedy or mitigate the issue so that the development is adequately serviced without compromising the existing infrastructure network.
