Standard Drawings Standard Drawings

Council has adopted a list of Standard Drawings for use within the Noosa local government area. 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.
