Development Engineering Design

Plans and specifications

All developers are required to prepare detailed engineering design plans in accordance with Shoalhaven City Council engineering design specifications and drawings where new infrastructure is required to be build to service new development or existing infrastructure modified to allow new development to take place.

Why are engineering design plans required?

Design plans are necessary to be prepared to Shoalhaven City Council engineering standard specification to ensure works are carried out at a high standard.

What is the purpose of inspections?

Shoalhaven City Council requires certain inspections be carried out during the construction phase to ensure the works comply with our standards.  This inspection process is critical to allowing the works to progress to completion and connection to the existing road network, paths and drainage systems.  Shoalhaven City Council's inspections are in addition to inspections that are carried out by Shoalhaven Water.  Shoalhaven City Council inspections are charged out in accordance with Council's fees and charges.

Why are Works-as-Executed (WAE) plans required?

These plans are necessary so the actual location of the asset built is known and in what manner it was constructed.  Works-as-executed plans are required to be prepared by a registered surveyor.  Shoalhaven City Council requires these plans to be submitted electronically in a format that allows electronic importing of asset details.
