Feature and Level surveys

Feature and Level surveys – Williamstown/Newport

If you are about to embark on a land development project within Victoria, a Feature and Level Survey is the first step you need to take in order to experience an efficient development and building process.

Ideally, a Feature and Level Survey should always be carried out prior to any plans being created by architects or builders as they provide crucial information in regards to the limitations created by the conditions of your property. Failure to do so can cause costly delays, unexpected expenses and frustration during the building process.

The survey will need to be submitted to your local council to meet the requirements of planning, building and subdivision permit applications. We have dealt with a range of councils including The City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Golden Plains Shire, Hobsons Bay City Council, Moonee Valley City Council, Brimbank City Council, Wyndham City Council and the Moorrabal Shire Council just to name a few.

At Smith Land Surveyors, we provide thorough and accurate Feature and Level Surveys to a range of clients including architects, designers, builders and developers. Our Feature and Level Surveys generally include the following information:

  • Contours
  • A.H.D. Levels
  • Existing building (including eaves, windows, ridges and floor level)
  • Sheds and other structures
  • Adjoining structures
  • Fences
  • Utilities and services
  • Driveways, kerbing & road features
  • Drains and sewerage
  • Significant trees (greater than 300mm in diameter)
  • Private open spaces

If greater detail is required we are always able to accommodate our surveys to meet your specific needs.

We provide our services across the Melbourne Metropolitan area as well as Greater Geelong and the Surf Coast.  Recently we have completed a number of surveys in the Williamstown and Newport area as this area seems to be an area of rapid growth and development.
