   Development Control Policy Guidelines the Design and Geometric Layout of Residential Roads  (254.17 KB)

These guidelines provide suggested design criteria for each level of road in the road hierarchy and provide some simple aspects of geometric design.

While responsibility for the approval of the detailed design will rest with the relevant local government, the WAPC will be guided by the policy and these guidelines in establishing road reservations and networks through its determination of subdivision applications. Local governments are advised to favourably consider these guidelines, but also to consider any Australian standards where they exist.
