Traffic Management Plans - Road Reserve and Events

If you are organising works within the road reserve or are holding an event that will impact traffic or pedestrians, the Road Management Act requires you to get consent from the coordinating road authority.


Who is the coordinating road authority?

Council is the relevant coordinating road authority for local roads and VicRoads is the relevant coordinating road authority for arterial roads, but your application for consent can be sent directly to Council.


How do I apply for consent?

To apply, you need to send an email to council@cgd.vic.gov.au and include the below information:

  • contact details
  • start and end dates
  • proposed hours of operation
  • description of the event/works
  • traffic management plan/s

Please email the information to Council at least 10 days before the works/event. You may be required to make changes or gain consent from VicRoads, PTV, Victoria Police or other government bodies.


Fees

Council now charges a fee for assessing Traffic Management Plans (TMPs) and Traffic Guidance Schemes (TGSs) for works on local roads. Applications received will be issued an invoice, which must be paid prior to Council providing consent for the proposed traffic management works.

The fees for assessing Traffic Management Plans and Traffic Guidance Schemes are listed below.
