Council has established Developer Contribution Agreements for the provision of direct infrastructure requirements external to the various residential development sites within the Mount Barker District Council area.
The following document provides information that reflects good engineering practice and details the standards and requirements that need to be met in the design, construction, and development of infrastructure assets in the Mount Barker District Council.
The document "Standards and Requirements in the Design, Construction and Development of Infrastructure Assets in the Mount Barker District Council" was issued for public comment and has now been endorsed by Council.
This document should be used by developers to fulfil the infrastructre requirements of Developer Contribution Legal Agreements.
Digital As-Constructed Standard
Council maintains a comprehensive Geographic Information System (GIS) and asset database, which contains valuable information on all Council owned infrastructure assets.
The manual below is for the use of Private Developers, the Representatives of Private Developers and Contractors ("Consultant") who are required to submit "As Constructed" information to Council as part of the development approval process or contractual conditions and in accordance with the requirements of the Standards and Requirements in the Design, Construction and Development of Infrastructure Assets document.
This manual and the associated Microsoft Excel attribute data forms have been written to assist Developers in the preparation of digital "As-Constructed" information to be submitted to Council in lieu of traditional "As-Constructed" plans. They specify the format in which the digital files are required in order for Council to append the data to its existing Geographic Information System and Asset Database.
Any questions relating to this matter should be directed to the GIS Co-ordinator, telephone 8391 7265.
