Erect Staging and/or Scaffolding on a Road or Footpath

General Information

An application for a Permit to Close and Barricade a Footpath & Erect Staging and/or Scaffolding on a Road or Footpath is usually lodged when tradesmen are carrying out work on one of Council’s footpaths e.g. painting a shop front, requiring the footpath to be closed.

The applicant will be required to fill out an application form and pay the applicable fees.

Note: All applicants closing the footpath will be required to pay the first application fee.

If the applicant is also erecting staging or scaffolding i.e. tressels for painting, a second fee will apply.

The applicant will receive a copy of the signed form.
