Design Notes

Design Notes is a series of advices on design issues relating to infrastructure design within our municipality.

While the primary source of design information remains the Infrastructure Design Manual, these bulletins provide additional information and advice about the design of land development projects within the City of Greater Geelong. 

We recommend developers and consultants make themselves aware of this information so that projects progress as quickly as possible. Members of the Subdivision Design Notes Group are emailed notices of any updates to the IDM or the Design Notes. Interested parties can request to be a member of this group by using the Feedback area below.

Our staff are available to developers and consultants to provide assistance when compiling your documentation to meet the standards.
