Public domain improvements

Our design codes (available for download below) set the guidelines for all public domain improvements within the City of Sydney including:

  • streets
  • footpaths
  • landscaping
  • public spaces.

The following design codes apply to development applications for public domain works:

  • Sydney Streets Code 2013
  • Sydney Lights Code
  • Sydney Signage Code (currently being updated)
  • Sydney Parks Code (currently being updated).

The Sydney Streets Technical Specifications 2013 is the companion document to the public domain design codes.
