Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash has
announced the engagement of company Footprint Sustainable Engineering to
undertake the investigation, design and documentation of the infrastructure for
Jerberra Estate following a public advertising, quotation and award process.
“Development of the estate can now be undertaken in
accordance with the recently adopted Development Control Plan. The engagement
of Footprint Sustainable Engineering is a welcome first step in the delivery of
public infrastructure at the Estate” said Clr Gash.
Footprint Sustainable Engineering will be commencing
investigations on site over the next few weeks starting with land surveying and
geotechnical investigations in the road reserves.
Once the data is collected the design process will
be undertaken for roads, stormwater and electrical infrastructure.
“The estate will not be provided with water or sewer
infrastructure as the Development Control Plan has adopted the approach where
developments are self-sustaining for water and sewerage” said Clr Gash.
The Mayor said the concept design including minimal
street lighting, intersection upgrades and bus stops will be presented to landholders
at a public meeting. After consultation, the design will be developed and
documentation prepared to allow the works to be tendered for construction.
