Engineering assessments play an important role in town planning applications. Issues relating to storm water drainage, flooding, roads, traffic, parking, lighting and other Council infrastructure are assessed.

This process ensures all developments and subdivisions can be provided with the appropriate services so they do not overload, or cause problems to the infrastructure in place.

New residential estates are also assessed to ensure they meet current Australian Standards, Rescode and Council policies to ensure the best designs and construction methods are used.

Council now offers those developing properties with 3 or more dwellings, all commercial and industrial developments with the option of paying a cash contribution in-lieu of providing on site stormwater quality treatments.  More information can be found at www,
