Vehicle Crossings and Road Openings

When making an application for Vehicle Crossing or Road Opening, your Permit becomes active upon receipt of payment.

Vehicle crossings, although they are on Council land, need to be maintained by property owners, as they are primarily constructed to ensure vehicles can access the property in a safe manner. To ensure that vehicle crossings are constructed to a safe, consistent and practical standard, Council has developed standard drawings S201, S202 & S203 which are included in the Vehicle crossing / road opening permit pack.


Vehicle Crossing Permit

All new and amendments to existing vehicle crossings require a vehicle crossing permit with specific conditions that need to be followed at all times. The cost of a vehicle crossing permit is currently $145. In instances where an Asset Protection Permit has been taken out; provided that only reinstatement works are required and there is no change to the vehicle crossing, reinstatement of the vehicle crossing can be done under the Asset Protection Permit. However, in this instance the standard permit conditions of the 'Vehicle crossing / Road opening permit' need to be adhered to at all times and concreters will need to arrange for a pre-pour inspection by contacting Council's Customer Care team on 1300 653 356.

Storm Water Connection

If your permit applies to a storm water connection please have your licensed plumber to contact Council's Customer Care team on 1300 653 356 to organise an inspection before carrying out any connection works.

Road Opening Permit

 If your permit applies to a road opening then please note a council officer will attend this location upon completion of your works to ensure all rectification works were carried out to council standards. If you have any queries relating to the road opening permit please contact Council's Customer Care team on 1300 653 356. However no further action is required from you at this time.
