The City of Cockburn is expanding rapidly due to land development of Greenfield areas as well as infill development within established suburbs. Some key developments the City is currently managing include Cockburn Central West (the Dockers New Training Ground) and subdivisions such as Calleya Estate, Cockburn Coast, Port Coogee Marina Village, Eliza Ponds and Vivente.
As it is currently estimated that the municipality of Cockburn will have a population of 175 000 people by 2036 a lot more development is set to occur in our council.
Standard Subdivision Engineering Process
Once a subdivision has received approval from the Western Australian Planning Commission or a development application has received approval from the Citys Planning Department the engineering process related to the development can commence:
SUBDIVISION GUIDELINES AND STANDARD DRAWINGS
To help standardise the process, the City has produced the following design guidelines and standard drawings. City acknowledges that the Guidelines published by IPWEA (latest edition) are to be considered as the minimum standard for subdivision development. The below documents are subject to periodic change and constructive criticism will be appreciated.
It is the responsibility of developers and consultants who work with development to ensure the document they are referring to is the most recent available.
To facilitate this, the version number on the front cover will be updated every time a change is made to the document and a list of the changes made will be provided in the table of contents.
Compliance with these documents in the design will result in a simpler design process and a quicker approval time.
The City of Cockburn appreciates innovation however approval for any variance should be sought before it is incorporated in the design. A regional stormwater drainage management report is provided for the localities of Banjup and Hammond Park.
