Construction standards

The engineering design of infrastructure within Greater Bendigo must comply with the City of Greater Bendigo Engineering Standards and City of Greater Bendigo Standard Drawings. 

The majority of these standard drawings can be found in the Infrastructure Design Manual. 

Infrastructure Design Manual

This Infrastructure Design Manual was designed to document and standardise Council requirements for the design and development of municipal infrastructure. 

It aims to also expedite council engineering approvals and ensure that minimum design criteria are met in regard to the design and construction of municipal infrastructure regardless of whether it is constructed by Council or a developer.

City of Greater Bendigo Standard Drawings

As Bendigo has a rich history dating back to the Gold Rush Era, there is some infrastructure throughout the municipality that is unique to our city, such as the use of bluestone kerb and footpaths.

If you are required to undertake works within an area that utilises bluestone or other infrastructure specific to Bendigo, you are required to follow the standards defined in City of Greater Bendigo’s Standard Drawings. Contact us on 03 5434 6370 or email [email protected] for more information.
