The Operative Waipa District Plan occasionally refers to publications that act as a measure to help applicants comply with rules or provisions in the plan. These publications are known as 'material incorporated by reference'. You can view the publications either at the Te Awamutu or Cambridge Office, or you can request a copy of the material incorporated by reference (with the exception of standards) by calling 0800 924 723.
Council is unable to provide copies of standards (New Zealand and international) due to matters of copyright. These must be obtained directly from the source: http://www.standards.co.nz/default.htm
