Might be worthwhile to see if a wet vent system can be used. As best I can tell from your drawing, things seem ok. The most important part is, if you are required to pull permits.

Maybe its just me but seems a little overkill. You should be able to run a 2" pipe from the stack and elbow it towards the 3" drain, then use 'Y' connectors to attach drainage for the shower and sink. (instead of running 3 vent stacks)

Also, you may want to check to see how far away the toilet drain is from a 3" stack. If its a bungalow you probably are pretty close to one.

thanks for the info, i have since revamped my drawings only to find that i can't go any further than 10 feet from the drain and i have about 11, so back to the drawing board :(
