Prior to issue of a Construction Certificate or Subdivision Works Certificate, you may be required to submit water and sewer design plans for Shoalhaven Water’s approval. Where a Complying Development Certificate is issued, then the design plans are prepared and approved prior to the commencement of any works. The design plans must be approved by Shoalhaven Water before a Certificate can be issued.
The design plans must clearly indicate:
- What infrastructure is to be constructed, what is existing, and what is to be modified,
- Details of the development including lot layout, contours, buildings and structures (existing and proposed), vegetation, other infrastructure,
- Construction notes, procedures, practices,
- Staging of work (if staged).
Other documentation required include work method statements, soil erosion and sedimentation control plans, detailed engineering calculations, and detailed strategy reports.
Water and sewerage design plans need to be prepared by a suitably qualified consultant to Shoalhaven Water’s specifications. Please refer to Guides, Resources and Standards for relevant documents.
How do I submit design plans?
Design plans can be submitted by using our online Information & Support Documentation Submission form. Associated fees will be invoiced to the applicant or nominated person or company.
