Growth Areas Municipalities Engineering Design and Construction Manual:

Contractors and Consultant Engineers working in the land development sector (particularly the Growth Areas Councils), are advised that the MPA’s adoption of the Engineering design and construction manual is soon to occur following the completion of drafting.

The Manual has been developed over a number of years and follows in the wake of the Regional Infrastructure Design Manual.

Perhaps the best feature of the Manual is that it standardises the design requirements of the Growth areas Councils thus removing the costs of non standard design or individual likes/dislikes that have plagued the Development area for many years.

CCF has had extensive input into various components of the Manual, and we would like to express our appreciation for the input of the following companies that have contributed time, effort and knowledge over the period of development of the Manual…

  • CivilWorX Pty Ltd – Gary Gardiner
  • Rokon Pty Ltd – Steve Traicevski
  • Universal Group – Mark Russo
  • Alex Fraser Ind – Mark Barraclough

Whilst the Manual is yet to receive final MPA approval (expected before the end of the month), the “draft version for approval” can be made available for Members on request (given the size of the document 270+ pages). If you would like to view the document, please advise CCF Vic Branch CEO John Stewart at
