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
You should take photos and record details of existing damage to all the public assets around the work site and the adjacent area to submit with your application. If there is no record, it is presumed there is no existing damage to Council assets prior to the work commencing.
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.
