West Dapto Open Space Design and Technical Manuals

Consultation has concluded

West Dapto is the region’s largest strategic urban release area. In 2018 the West Dapto Vision was presented to the community for comment. After this engagement, Council adopted the West Dapto Vision in December 2018.

Now the vision is adopted, we’re reviewing the West Dapto Open Space Design and Technical Manuals and inviting you to have your say on our improvements.

The West Dapto Vision 2018 contemplates a review of the Wollongong Development Control Plan 2009 (DCP) to include a more focused and detailed network planning for open space.

The Open Space Design Manual (OSDM) will provide guidance at subdivision planning stage and detail the requirements and scale of each of the park categories on the open space hierarchy such as Sports Parks, Neighbourhood Parks and Local Parks.

The West Dapto Open Space Design Manual (OSDM) clearly set Council’s design expectations for natural and riparian areas, stormwater management and open space, equal access, and maintenance within each park category.

  • The OSDM details the requirements and scale of each of the park categories when the subdivision open space is first being conceived, laid out, and costed.
  • The OSDM details specific design guidelines are provided for open space functions such as play spaces, car parking, public art, furniture, pathways, off road cycling trails, waste collection, and signage.

The Open Space Technical Manual is a reference document to provide the technical specifications for proposed open space infrastructure, detailing model types, materials and finishes to guide the detailed design and costing of subdivision open space provision appropriate to the category of park being provided.

You will find the manuals in the Document Library to the right of this page. Please view the manuals and provide your feedback in the surveys below.
