Develop subdivision survey designs for local government approval

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: July 2018


This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to develop a subdivision survey design for local government approval using cadastral surveying methods and equipment. The unit covers analysing and researching client service requests and existing information to assess and prioritise work tasks, and conducting a survey of the land to be subdivided. The unit also covers conducting measurements and calculations; and developing plans detailing required information, including boundary dimensions and corners, subdivision lots, features, surrounds, connections and offsets. The unit requires the ability to set up, calibrate and use surveying equipment to measure, record and reduce surveying data. The unit also requires the ability to prepare, lodge and monitor a detailed design submission for local government approval which details engineering aspects, physical constraints and any environmental impacts. The unit requires knowledge of land and planning law and local government building approval processes. It requires consultation with clients and professionals to obtain advice for input into the design submission.

The unit supports those who work in a lead role in a surveying or spatial information services team, in areas such as town planning, surveying and mapping.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit in some States where cadastral surveying must be undertaken under the supervision of a registered surveyor. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm those requirements.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)
