Approved Materials

Council is committed to providing quality assets and infrastructure whilst balancing operational and maintenance costs at a level that meets community expectation. Experience gained over many years of operating and maintaining infrastructure has shown that relying only on standard specifications for components of an infrastructure system or network does not necessarily provide the best result.

Tauranga City Council LogoWestern Bay of Plenty District Council

Tauranga City Council & Western Bay of Plenty District Council have teamed up to operate under a single combined Approved Materials application and management process. This ensures a singular, consistent and efficient approach for industry practitioners with regard to the greater western Bay of Plenty area, whilst helping the Councils achieve their required outcomes.

Approved Materials Process and Requirements

The Approved Materials requirements are empowered by Tauranga City Council’s Infrastructure Development Code (IDC) and the Western Bay of Plenty District Council’s Development Code. Decisions are made by appropriate representatives of both Councils or by an Advisory Panel (that may include independent experts).
