Developer guides and resources

Learn how to make sure your development is safe from flooding and doesn’t impact other properties or waterways.

We often set conditions on developments so that they’re safe from flooding and don’t impact other properties or waterways. Follow our step-by-step guides and resources to make sure you meet our standards.

Planning permit conditions

Your council planning permit may include conditions you’ll need to agree to, such as:

  • paying a contribution towards works that we build
  • other special conditions or financial arrangements

Any works that you build must meet our design and construction standards, which you’ll find within this section.
