Vehicle Crossing Permits
Before constructing a vehicle crossing, the builder/contractor is required to obtain a vehicle crossing permit. Council officers must be contacted to arrange a pre-pour and a final inspection to ensure the construction meets Council standards.
For industrial, commercial or multi-dwelling developments a town planning permit is required.
All residential vehicle crossing permit applications must first be assessed before a permit can be issued.
