Infrastructure Development Code

The Infrastructure Development Code (IDC) is the document that outlines Tauranga City Council’s required standards for how infrastructure and land should be developed. 

Where the City Plan describes what kind of structure or development is able to occur in any given area, the IDC describes the standards to which that structure or development should be constructed. It covers things like the steepest gradient you are allowed to build on and the sort of materials and methods to use when installing stormwater pipes.

The IDC replaced the 2006 Code of Practice on 1 July 2011. 

The latest update to the IDC was completed on 1 July 2014. Please refer to the Table of Amendments to the IDC for information on the changes of significance for IDC updates.
