LIM - Open space landscape infrastructure manual

The LIM provides guidance during the design, development and delivery of council controlled open space. It also assists with the maintenance of council assets.

The purpose of the open space landscape infrastructure manual (LIM) is to provide guidance during the design, development and delivery of council controlled open space. View the short video for a visual understanding of how the LIM promotes quality, compliance and sustainability, which minimises ongoing maintenance and ensures longevity.

The 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.

Council’s annual review is now complete, with one (1) new category introduced: LIM environmental management of fauna and flora.

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 It is recommended that pages are not printed, as they may become out of date.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.
