Development Industry Resources


All developers are required to prepare detailed engineering design plans in accordance with Shoalhaven City Council engineering design specifications and drawings.

Works-as-executed plans are required to be prepared by a registered surveyor. 

Shoalhaven City Council requires these plans to be submitted electronically in a format that allows electronic importing of asset details.

Erosion and Sediment Control - Best Environmental Practices

Our Erosion and Sediment Control guide contains helpful information on:

  • Best practices for your building site
  • How to control and minimise your environmental impact
  • How to prevent erosion and sediment runoff reaching gutters, drains, streams, rivers, lakes and beaches

This guide is designed to help you manage your environmental impact and comply with the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.

It is intended to provide easy, effective and realistic advice on how to adopt control methods to support good site practices so you can manage your site and minimise (or totally remove) your impact on waterways and the wider environment.
