Operational Works - Construction
Once an Operational Works approval is given, works may commence on the site. This stage includes information on pre-start meetings, as-constructed drawings, bonding and street naming.
A pre-start meeting is a meeting that occurs before work is undertaken on a site. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss schedule of works, standards and expectations that are required. The meeting involves the developer (if they wish to attend), their consulting engineer, contractor and a Council Technical Officer.
How do I arrange a pre-start meeting?
Prior to any work starting at the site, please phone 07 3412 5269 to arrange a pre-start meeting. The applicant or the applicant's agent must complete the Pre-start Meeting Kit (PDF 227 KB) before the pre-start meeting.
Pre-start meeting information can be submitted via one of the following methods.
Is there a fee for a pre-start meeting?
An inspection compliance fee must be paid to Council prior to a pre-start meeting being held, as per Council's fees and charges (PDF 7445 KB).
As-constructed drawings are the final set of drawings of various pieces of infrastructure that are produced at the completion of a development. As-constructed information must be submitted to Council for checking and acceptance as soon as the works are completed in accordance with Planning Scheme Policy 5 - Infrastructure of the Logan Planning Scheme and the relevant development permit. For information about what to include in the submission, refer to the As-constructed Submission Kit (PDF 166 KB).
As-constructed drawings can be submitted via one of the following methods, noting that Council has adopted the Asset Designed As Constructed (ADAC) data specification for all newly constructed assets. Please refer to our ADAC Information Sheet.
Additionally, the following information may offer assistance with preparing the submission:
- Operational Works development permits
- Section 5.6 of Planning Scheme Policy 5 - Infrastructure of the Logan Planning Scheme
Bonding is a process where the applicant gives Council a financial security (cash, bank guarantee or cheque). The security covers incomplete development construction works to obtain the early release of survey plans and sell the lots when development works are finished.
For more information or to apply for bonding, refer to the following documents:
- Bonding Application Form (PDF 316 KB)
- Bonding Fact Sheet (PDF 37 KB)

When streets are created in a new development, the applicant (usually the developer), is responsible for naming the streets.
For more information or to apply for street naming, refer to the Street Naming Fact Sheet (PDF 31 KB) and Street Naming Form (PDF 58 KB). Street naming applications can be submitted via one of the following methods.
