Vehicle Crossing (Driveway) Permits

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.

What happens next?

  • A Council Officer will conduct an onsite visit within 5 business days and assess your application.
  • The Officer will contact you via phone to advise you of the outcome and how things proceed, if approved.
  • Once you have received approval for the construction of your vehicle crossing, you can obtain a quote for Council to carry out the works by contacting Council's Customer Service staff on 02 4645 4000. Otherwise, you can engage the services of a local contractor to construct your vehicle crossing for you.
