The purpose of the Open Space Landscape Infrastructure Manual (also referred to as the 'LIM') is to provide guidance during the design, development and delivery of council controlled open space. The LIM promotes quality, compliance and sustainability, which minimises ongoing maintenance and ensures longevity.
The LIM is a technical manual aimed at designers, project delivery personnel and maintenance teams, for both developer and council delivered assets. It is a living document which will grow and evolve as councils' needs change.
Updates are provided yearly (April). It is recommended that pages are not printed, as they may become out of date.
Additional tools are provided to assist with the use of this manual.
Your feedback is welcome, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
