Subdivision & Engineering Specifications

The Engineering Specifications web page provides documents setting out Council's requirements for engineering design and the construction of subdivision and other development works.

These specifications have been prepared to ensure the quality of new public assets, the compatibility of private works with Council's infrastructure, and the protection of the environment from the impacts of development.
