Moreland technical notes

Purpose of the technical notes

Moreland technical notes are used by Council and also provide guidance to developers on Council’s accepted standards and construction methods.

Moreland technical notes are the primary reference for selecting, constructing and maintaining engineering, street and landscape details. They create an integrated document to facilitate construction in streets and public spaces in Moreland.

One-off furniture pieces or details for special projects or areas may still be implemented within high profile or significant projects. It should be established during the scoping stage of a project as to whether the technical notes will apply to a particular project, refer to 4.3 Approving Exceptions.

Who can use the technical notes?

Moreland’s technical notes provide a list of design details with reference to standard drawings to assist in constructions within Moreland’s streets and public spaces. Please note that Council approval and permit are required for works carried out in public areas, before construction begins.

Technical notes can be used by:

  • External contractors and suppliers tendering or delivering Council projects
  • External engineering consultants working for Council
  • Council officers involved in capital project construction, maintenance, cleansing, and development application process
  • Developers undertaking footpath reinstatements, and
  • Property owners for maintenance of driveways and nature strips.
