Road Occupation Permit

You need to apply for a Road Occupation Permit if you intend to occupy Council land while doing any of the following:

  • Carry out construction works or use a concrete pump.
  • Use a mobile crane or travel tower (if you apply for a crane permit, and the crane overhangs or encroaches above a property not related to your works, you need written consent from the airspace owner).
  • Store building materials, plants, equipment, site sheds or machinery.

We need a minimum of 10 days to assess applications.

If other referrals are needed, we may need longer than 10 days.
