An Asset Protection Permit (APP) ensures that public assets and infrastructure are kept safe during demolition, construction (including extensions), pool installation, front fence construction and landscaping works. It requires any damages incurred during these works to be repaired at the completion of the work. Public assets include:
- shared paths
- vehicle crossings
- nature strips
- kerb and channel
- stormwater drains
- street lights
- street signage
An APP will also protect you by recording any existing damage before the work begins.
Some minor works may be exempt. Exemptions must be requested in writing by emailing email@example.com or speak to the Asset Protection Officer on 1300 653 356.
