This page covers all works that need to be done in the road, whether this is by local companies, residents or Council.
Council's authority for management of the road network is through the
Roads Act 1993. The Act requires all private works in a public road (including footways) to obtain specific Council approval. A Work Permit process is the mechanism used for applications and necessary approvals.
A Work Permit covers the following matters:
Under the Roads Act 1993, a vehicular crossing (being private works) is the responsibility of the property owner. Properly constructed crossings are encouraged as damage caused to a footway because of the lack of a crossing or by virtue of an unauthorised crossing may attract a penalty. Your driveway must comply with standards!
Vehicular Footway Crossings Policy establishes guidelines for the construction, widening, reconstruction and maintenance of vehicular crossings.
The design and specification covered by the application fee provides construction standards and levels.
In the case of new home, an early application of a Work Permit for a crossing will help ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in the approval to construct.
A Work Permit Application Form should be submitted at Council's Customer Service Centre prior to commencement of works.
For more information and access to the relevant forms, go to the
Roads and Infrastructure Forms page.
