Engineering - Standards & Requirements
Light Regional Council has a set of standard engineering drawings to be used when constructing assets connected to, or to be incorporated into public stormwater, footpaths, roads, sewer, water or parks etc.
The following documents have been prepared by the Light Regional Council as a reference document to assist developers, planners, engineers and the general public involved in the planning, design or construction of development in the Light Regional Council area.
These standards and requirements have been prepared with the aim of encouraging “best practice” in the development of new urban areas in the Light Regional Council. It is acknowledged that “best practice” changes over time and reviews will be made to these standards and requirements on an as needs basis in order to reflect such changes.
This document should be used by developers for infrastructure planning and design, however, each development site and Development Application will vary from site to site. Accordingly, designers are encouraged to consult with the Council’s Development & Regulatory Services (D&RS) and Strategy, Projects & Engineering (S,P&E) staff and any other relevant authorities prior to and/or during the preparation of designs.
Designers, in addition to the requirements of these documents, should ascertain the specific requirements of all authorities as they relate to the proposed designs for the specific development site.
Development approval will be incumbent on all of the requirements of the Development Act 1993, the Light Regional Council Development Plan and site specific planning conditions being met. This document does not specifically address planning issues and the applicant should contact Council’s Department of Development and Regulatory Services (D&RS) regarding these issues.
The following documents shall be used in the planning, design and construction of Direct Infrastructure Assets as identified in developer contribution agreements established between Council and the developer.
The following documents are not intended to inhibit innovation. Council encourages and will consider innovative design where it can be demonstrated that the alternative approach is equal to or superior to the standards set out in this document.
