Site Analysis Feature Surveys

Site Analysis Survey - Used by your Architect and council for town planning.


Sometimes called neighbourhood description surveys, site analysis feature surveys locate not only information on your property, but also several of your neighbouring properties.

A site analysis feature survey is generally required by Council when you are developing your property with units or townhouses. Even if you are keeping the existing house and adding another at the rear, a site analysis feature survey is generally what is required.

This enables your architect and Council to fully assess the neighbourhood character by examination of the neighbouring houses.  Generally houses within a 50 metres radius surrounding your property are located accurately and shown on the plan.


Information located in a site analysis feature survey includes the following:

  • Levels to Australian Height Datum (AHD)
  • Contours over the site at 0.2 metre intervals
  • Easements (if any), title bearings and distances
  • On the existing house on site - floor level, ridge heights and gutter heights
  • On the existing site - garages, sheds, carports, trees, fence heights and descriptions
  • On the nature strip - street furniture including trees, footpaths, services such as pits, water, telstra and gas meters etc
  • On directly adjoining properties - setbacks, windows overlooking the site including heights, heights of ridges, gutters and floor levels where possible
  • On all other neighbouring houses - setbacks, street furniture, fence type and height, heights of ridges, gutters and floor levels where possible
  • A benchmark is always located at the front of subject property

We use latest computer technology, field and office equipment enabling us to work accurately and efficiently. All drawings are done in Civilcad and Autocad, maintaining a standardised format that is incomparable.
