Hoarding and barricades

Hoarding and barricades protect the public during construction.

They also secure a site when nobody's there.

You must have a permit in place before putting up hoarding, a protective barrier or temporary fencing on Council land.

If a hoarding is required for a building permit, you’ll need a Report and Consent - Precautions Over Street from Council before the building permit is issued.

When you have your Report and Consent, you can apply for a hoarding permit.
