Road Opening permits are to be used by contractors and private individuals who wish to undertake “minor works” as defined in the Road Management (Works and Infrastructure) Regulations 2005, such as service connections and minor stormwater connections. This form is also used for any works on Council assets not within a road reserve.
All works on Council assets require a permit. Download the Road Opening Application Form below to obtain a permit.
Work conducted on Council assets must also comply with the specifications in the Road Opening Conditions to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists.
Damage or failure to return the Council assets to an acceptable standard may result in Council conducting repairs/maintenace work at the expense of the person responsible.
