To assist developers and contractors in providing quality road and drainage infrastructure to the community, Council has produced a comprehensive Engineering Guideline and Civil Works Specificaiton.
The aim of these documents is to facilitate the efficient processing of engineering plan submissions, and to ensure that infrastructure associated with any development is designed and constructed to be safe, serviceable, economical to maintain and meets community expectations.
Applicants should be aware that each development will be treated on its merits, and that approval is dependant on the overall impact of the development and not solely on compliance with minimum engineering standards. a copy of these documents is provided below in PDF form. Hard copies are also avaliable for purchase over the counter at 62 Flushcombe Road, Blacktown.
