I tripped over this while looking for something about building codes, I don't need it for what I'm doing, but it may be useful to others, linking it here. Free download. ICC IWUIC (2012): International Wildland-Urban Interface Code

Interesting. I skimmed through it. Its entirely about house buffer zones from fire. I was expecting something about wildlife, but no. It reads like a municipal zoning lawyer and a insurance lawyer wrote a guide to the idea of Permaculture zones, but their intended audience is firetrucks.  

Someone could pick out some useful numbers for recommended distances between property elements.

How weird! I honestly didn't look through it, I had downloaded 3 other sets of codes that I'm reading, Not reading stuff I know I don't need. Thank you for summing it up so others know whether to bother with it.

I was guessing it would be stuff about water flow and habitat...

:D
