There are a number of construction permits you may need, depending on your project.
Most building projects require Asset Protection to ensure public assets and infrastructure such as roads, footpaths and trees are not damaged and protects the builder from any existing damage.
Required when building works need to be undertaken outside Council's specified construction hours and days.
For any works that involve making or reinstating a hole or excavation.
Requested when you need to wholly or partially close a road, street or lane.
A permit is required to prune or remove a tree or palm if it is defined as 'significant' under Local Law.
Registered skip bin companies must obtain a permit before a bulk rubbish container is placed on a road or Council-owned land.
A street occupation, or hoarding, permit allows part or all of a footpath or road to be occupied for a variety of construction needs.
Allows either a temporary or permanent vehicle crossing to be constructed.
Provides dedicated parking for construction workers' vehicles during the period of building works.
