Vehicle Crossings - new or modified
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.

Working in the road reserve
Prior to undertaking any work within the road reserve, you must submit a Corridor Access Request.
This ensures construction activity carried out in the road reserve is done by qualified persons, and meets standard requirements. There are several issues and potential risks when working within the road corridor - and we want to ensure anyone working within the road reserve has demonstrated a suitable level of competence and knowledge of these issues and risks.
The Council ensures vehicle entrances are constructed to appropriate standards and in safe locations. However, any improvements and maintenance to the vehicle crossing are the property owner's responsibility.
