Subdivision Design Manual

Design Manual for the Subdivision of Land

The City of Greater Dandenong’s Design Manual for the Subdivision of Land is aimed at land developers and consulting engineers working in the land development industry.

The manual contains guidelines and standards for producing quality designs and ultimately first class subdivisions to cater for the city’s rapid growth. It also sets the development and application process that developers and consulting engineers have to follow to ensure that their projects are approved with the least possible delay.  

Council undertakes revisions to the manual as neccessary, in line with updates to the standards. Any suggestions for improvements from users of this manual are most welcomed and incorporated as necessary.
