Best Practice Design Guide.
Subdivision and Infrastructure Development in Hastings District.
The purpose of this guide is to give developers and subdivision designers a design
process and guidelines on best practice subdivision and infrastructure design. Conventional design solutions are often not consistent with sustainable development
principles and in many cases they are not delivering high quality places for people.

Engineering Code of Practice
This Engineering Code of Practice is a comprehensive document which provides guidelines on the engineering standards Council will use when setting conditions for Resource Consents for Subdivision and Land Use projects. 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.
This Guide clearly defines the process and provides whanau with a resource
to support them to realise their papakainga aspirations. The Guide is based on the Māori
philosophical approach of whanau, whenua, whare and incorporates appropriate whakatauaki throughout.
