Development approval conditions timed for prior to submission of an operational works application must be satisfied prior to application lodgement.
Written approvals and clearances for the following may be required as applicable:
- State Government referral agencies
- downstream drainage discharge rights
- consent for works in/on land not owned by the developer
- others (as required)
Council provides a pre-design meeting service to discuss design issues prior to finalising engineering drawings for submission. Contact Council’s Customer Service to arrange a meeting.
Checking of drawings and specifications prior to submission
Ensure all drawings and specifications have been checked and approved/signed by the Developers engineer (RPEQ) prior to submission to Council for approval. Council officers are not responsible for checking drawings in detail. It is the consultant's responsibility, through their quality assurance procedures, to ensure that designs and documentation are in accordance with Council's Standards, Policies, Planning Scheme and other appropriate engineering standards.
Non-conforming designs will be considered on merit. These designs should satisfy the performance outcomes of the Planning scheme. All non-conforming design proposals must be clearly identified and justification for their use provided.
