Inner West Council public domain works – standard drawings list

What you need to consider

All works on roads or footpaths require an application for a permit from Council before you start any work.  If you require any more information or need to download any application form please visit the following  pages.

For any  Road or Footpath application forms  visit the Works within Road and Footpath page.

For any  driveway application forms  (Step 1 Design Approval or Step 2 Permit for Construction) visit the driveways page.

The engineering standard drawings provide the detailed information you'll need to design, construct or reinstate any public domain works.



Inner West Council and its employees accept no responsibility for any loss, damage, claim, expense, cost or liability arising with referencing and/or reliance on the standard drawings. It is expected that these standard drawings will be redrawn by a suitably qualified person referencing the information and responding to specific site or project conditions/requirements. Council's standard drawings may be subject to revision. Accordingly, users need to ensure that when adopting any standard drawing that it is the current version. Whilst all care has been taken to provide the most accurate and current standard drawings, it is the responsibility of the person referencing the drawings to ensure that the requirements of all relevant Australian Standards and guidelines are being met.
