If you are planning to modify or construct a vehicle crossing (driveway) from your property boundary to the kerb and gutter or road, you are required to obtain Council approval prior to the commencement of any construction.
All vehicle crossings that are to be constructed across public land are required to be designed and constructed in accordance with Council's relevant standards and specifications and are to be approved by Council.
