The Standard Drawings on this website have been adopted by Council for use within the Noosa local government area. Please contact Council if you wish to use a different revision than those on this website.
Addendums to the Standard Drawings must be adhered to meeting the requirements of the Noosa Planning Scheme Policies and Noosa Design Principles:
- Support Noosa's environmental objectives with plantings that enhance biodiversity.
- Provide a transport network that caters to the needs of the community and blends into the environment rather than dominating it.
- Design for pedestrians, cyclists and buses in all road corridor improvements.
- Design to cater for the aged and disabled community.
