Engineering Standards 2011

Council's Engineering Standards are a reference document to the Kaipara District Plan.  The District Plan in one of the main 'triggers' for when the Engineering Standards must be complied with.  The Engineering Standards 2009 were reviewed as a result of submissions to the Proposed District Plan.  One aspect of that review was to reconsider how the two documents, the Standards and the Plan, relate and refer to each other.  It was decided that most engineering matters would be retained as a reference to Council's Engineering Standards in the Matters of Assessment within the District Plan, rather than incorporated within the rule itself.  However, for those aspects of the Standards that are relevant to efforts on the environment, then they would be incorporated within the rule itself, for example vehicle crossings.  The updated Engineering Standards 2011 and the District Plan reflect these changes.
