draft Subdivision Policy

Consultation has concluded

The Subdivision Policy provides specifications for the design and construction of subdivisions in the Wollongong Local Government Area. The proposed changes will ensure:

  1. the Policy is up-to-date by amending all superseded Australian Standards and Design Guidelines to reflect the current standards
  2. references to Council policies reflect current adopted policies and best practice.

Council’s Subdivision Policy (previously a ‘Code’) was adopted on 24 February 2003. The Policy provided specifications for the design and construction of Civil Infrastructure associated with new subdivisions.

The Subdivision Policy structure is based on the AUSPEC Guidelines which provides the template for the creation of design and construction standards associated with various civil construction projects such as geometric road design, storm water drainage, earthworks, and pavement design.

The draft Subdivision Policy is on exhibition between 14 March and 22 April 2016.

The draft Policy can be viewed on the right of this page, or in hard copy at:

  • Libraries at all Council libraries during library hours
  • Council Administration Building 41 Burelli Street Wollongong between 9am and 5pm weekdays.
