Requirements for Work As Executed (WAX) Plans Compliance Certificate

To successfully obtain a Tweed Shire Council Subdivision Work as Executed Plans Compliance Certificate:

  1. Work as Executed Plans (WAX Plans) as detailed in the Development Design Specification D13 are required so that Council can confirm if the final works conform to the locations, geometry and other engineering aspects documented in the approved Construction Certificate (and s68 approval, if applicable) design. Additionally the WAX Plans provide detailed data on all new or modified assets and infrastructure allowing Council to accurately record this information and plan for ongoing maintenance and renewal demands.
  2. From 1 January 2020, all Development Approval Consent Notices will include a requirement for the supply of a compliant ADAC XML Digital File to accompany Summary WAX Plan submissions for the associated development works.

What are WAX Plans?

Work as Executed (WAX) plans are submitted so that Council can confirm the construction is in accordance with the Construction Certificate (and s68, if applicable) approvals and conditions and to advise where geometries or other engineering related information may differ from the approved design.

Amended Design WAX Plans (prepared by Consulting Engineer showing marked-up design plans of WAX information) and Summary WAX Plans (prepared by the engaged Surveyor showing clean WAX information) are to be provided. The Summary WAX Plans must accurately reflect the actual material types, specifications and other asset-specific information relating to the completed works.

Providers are encouraged to use the WAX Drawing Template to assist with meeting Council’s presentation standards. Further details on the preparation of both Amended Design and Summary WAX Plans and the necessary certifications to be included may be found in the Development Design Specification D13 under the section detailing Subdivision Certificate Applications.

What are ADAC XML digital files?

The ADAC XML digital file is a precise digital record of all assets described in the Summary WAX Plans. Details include survey-accurate cadastral and boundary references, easements, geometries and relative levels as well as detailed asset records and accompanying attributes, including sizes and material types.

Depending on the tools (ADAC XML generator) being used to produce the ADAC XML, compliant digital files are created following survey capture and then finalised in conjunction with the preparation of the Summary WAX Plan(s). Alternatively the ADAC XML files may be generated after the electronic Summary WAX Plan (CAD drawing file) has been created. It is however essential that the Summary WAX Plans and ADAC XML digital files are created using complete and survey-accurate information and that all engineering details are fully consistent across both the Summary WAX Plan(s) and the ADAC XML digital file.

Further information on the creation of ADAC XML digital files can be found in the Tweed Shire Council ADAC Data Capture Guidelines (3.15mB PDF).
