Engineering Standards

The following provides information about good engineering practice and details the standards and requirements that need to be met in the design, construction, and development of infrastructure assets in the Wingecarribee Shire Council area.


Council’s revised Engineering Design and Construction Specifications and associated Development Control Plan Amendments come into effect on 1 January 2021 with a three (3) month transition period between 1 January and 31 March 2021 (inclusive).


During the transition period, all Development Applications, Construction Certificate applications, Subdivision Works Certificate applications, S68 applications and S138 applications can be accepted and assessed under either the superseded specifications or Council’s updated Engineering Design and Construction Specifications (to be nominated by the applicant). This three (3) months transition period will ensure that larger design projects will not be unfairly impacted by a sudden change in Council’s standards.


All applications lodged on or after 1 April 2021 will be assessed under Council’s updated Engineering Design and Construction Specifications and amended Development Control Plans, including all Construction Certificate, Subdivision Works Certificate, S68 and S138 applications. However, where there are inconsistencies between a development consent and Council’s Engineering Design and Construction Specifications, the development consent will prevail to the extent of any inconsistency.
