New or altered access onto a road (driveways)
If you want an access (driveway) from your property onto a State road, or want to upgrade or change an existing access, you need approval from the Department of State Growth.
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.
We will consider a lot of factors when assessing your application.
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 on the Tasmanian Guide - Traffic Control for Works on Roads webpage.
Before starting the online application all necessary documents must be available for uploading.
Please note the application will only be able to be submitted when the mandatory documents are uploaded. For the best experience, we recommend using Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari.
Applications must be received by the Department of State Growth at least 20 business days before your expected start date for works, to allow enough time to assess your application.
No works are to be undertaken until a written permit has been issued.
If you have any questions please call us on (03) 6166 3369.
