Design, standards specification and procedures

The design of municipal services in Peel is based on our design, standards & procedures.

These documents are intended to assist consultants, engineers, inspectors, and regional staff involved in the design and delivery of Regional Infrastructure and Services, as well as those involved in submitting engineering proposals and agreements for land development.

Specifications and procedures listed here might not apply in all circumstances. Communicate directly with the appropriate Regional staff to consider variances on a case by case basis. Engineers are still responsible for ensuring that a design meets all federal, provincial, regional and local government requirements. This review does not release engineers from this responsibility.

The Region shall review and approve all plans before construction starts.
