Vehicle Crossing Permit
If you are constructing a new vehicle entrance (also known as a driveway) to a property, or upgrading an existing one, you will need to apply for a Vehicle Crossing Permit and a Corridor Access Request (CAR) permit before you can start the work. You may also require a Traffic Management Plan.
A vehicle crossing is a connection between a property and a public road. Often referred to as a driveway entrance. All vehicle crossings must be approved by the Council and inspected by our staff throughout construction.
A Vehicle Crossing Permit application AND a Corridor Access Request (CAR) is needed by law for:
- removing or
- widening a vehicle crossing.
All vehicle crossings must be approved by the Council and inspected by our staff throughout construction.
There is no cost for a Vehicle Crossing Permit, but they must be approved by Council to make sure the construction is carried out by qualified persons,and meets the required construction standards.
No charge for the permit
We’re making it simpler and more cost effective for you to do your work. Our fees for approving a Vehicle Crossing permit and associated site inspections have been suspended for the time being.
There may be other council fees though if you need a Resource Consent.
