Draft Engineering Code of Practice 2020

The ECOP is a comprehensive document which provides engineering guidelines to developers and contractors to assist them in complying with the District Plan, policies and setting conditions for Resource Consents for Subdivision and Land Use projects. It is one means of compliance with the District Plan.

Councils Engineering Code of Practice (ECOP) was last revised and adopted in 2011.

The ECOP is a comprehensive document which provides engineering guidelines to developers and contractors to assist them in complying with the District Plan, policies and setting conditions for Resource Consents for Subdivision and Land Use projects. It is one means of compliance with the District Plan.

The Code does not aim to provide “cookbook” solutions. The standards in the Code provide acceptable solutions, but not necessarily the only solutions, for the engineering issues associated with subdivision and land use projects. Council’s intent is that all infrastructure created is, and will remain, fit for the intended life of the asset.

A review process commenced in 2015, with a number of issues identified. The consultation process commenced in 2018 with input and feedback obtained from an Expert Consultancy Group. As a result, amendments have been made to the Code and the Draft ECOP 2020 is now available for wider comment. These comments may be used to refine the final version of the ECOP 2020 before it goes to Council for adoption. Comments on the draft close on 14 September 2020.
