Driveways and Associated Works within Councils Road Reserve

Approval from Council is needed to carryout works on the road related area outside your property, this includes driveways and footpath works. Once you have submitted your application for driveway crossing and associated works on Councils road reserve, Council will provide a design plan and issue levels for access to your property to ensure your vehicle can enter and exit without damage.
Council will notify you when the construction package including plans are ready for collection.

Council no longer provides quotations to carry out the works as such it is the owners responsibility to choose a contractor for the works.

The property owner is required to ensure all contractors working on Council's road related areas maintain the Public Liability insurance requirements of $20 million for the duration of the works.

Please note: The location and geometric layout for driveways are designed and assessed for compliance with A.S.2890.1:2004 Off-Street Parking Guidelines.

Any proposals for a change in location or for new hard stand areas will be considered only after approval has been granted for internal works. Please note: Internal works may be subject to a separate Development Application.

If you require further information regarding this process, please contact Councils Customer Service Centre 9330 6400.
