Standard Drawings
The Gwinnett County Department of Planning and Development's standard drawings illustrate minimum acceptable standards for land development activities authorized under the Unified Development Ordinance of Gwinnett County Georgia. However these standards shall not supersede more restrictive prudent design requirements or good engineering practices as applied to specific situations on a case-by-case basis. Unless otherwise specified on these standard drawings or in the Unified Development Ordinance, all construction shall meet or exceed the minimum standards established by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
