Presentation on new code plannedThursday, 21 May 2009
Southland contractors, plumbers, engineers and utility providers are invited to a presentation this month about the new national code of practice for utilities' access to the transport corridor. Southland District Council roading manager Michael Voss said Council is preparing to implement the new code, which will replace the existing trenching bylaw and affect the subdivision and land development bylaw.
"Council believes everyone involved in accessing transport corridors for services needs to have knowledge about the new code and so everyone is invited to the presentation at 10am on 29 May," Mr Voss said.
All works within the Council's urban and rural roading network, including works to be vested with Council at a future date, will be subject to the provisions of this new code.
The code is available for downloading from http://www.nzuag.org.nz/national-code/implementation-code.html
Council does need numbers for the presentation so please register your attendance on 0800 732 732 before 25 May.
The presentation will be at the Stairs Function Centre, on the corner of Tweed and Ethel Streets, at 10am and attendees are encouraged to bring a copy of the code with them.
