Development and Construction

Resources for Developers

The Armidale Regional Council has developed Engineering Design Codes as a resource for developers. The Engineering Design Codes provide uniform development standards and clear guidelines for developers wishing to undertake work within the region.

Designs included in the Engineering Design Codes are road, driveways, pavement, structures and bridge, subsurface drainage, stormwater drainage, site regrading, erosion control sedimentation management, cycleway and pathway, bushfire protection, water supply and construction, and sewerage design and construction.

These guidelines for development infrastructure requirements can be accessed on the Armidale Regional Council website via the link below.
