1About the permit

The permit is issued in accordance with the provisions of the Roads and Jetties Act 1935. The permit authorises the Permit Holder and/or their Contractor or Agent, to carry out the works described, subject to the conditions specified. A permit will only be issued in the name of the title holder of the property.

2What we consider

We will consider a lot of factors when assessing your application.

  • The strategic importance of the road you want to access.
  • Whether the road has been proclaimed Limited Access. If it has, you will not be able to get a new access, and will only be able to change an existing access in certain circumstances.
  • The speed limit.
  • How many people use the road each day.
  • Sight distances. You may be able to improve these through trimming or removing trees and plants on your property.
  • The intended use of the land. If you intend to develop the land and will need a Council planning permit to do this (for example, if you are building a house), you will need to get that permit before applying for your Access Works Permit.
  • The types and numbers of vehicles that will be using the proposed access.

3Traffic control

Traffic control at work sites may be required to maintain a safe workplace for workers and to safely guide road users through work sites. More information can be found:
