Development specifications

The City of Coffs Harbour has adopted the AUS-SPEC series of specifications to describe the planning and design standards. It also describes the construction standards to be met for new civil engineering infrastructure associated with subdivisions and development works.

The City is a subscriber to the NATSPEC service. We make these standards available to users who accept the following terms and conditions.

The City's Standard Drawings are also available to supplement the AUS-SPEC documents.
