An application is to be made to Council when a concrete crossover/driveway or a new or additional driveway is to be installed.
Types of driveways covered by the application form include:-
When an application is made, Council Technical Officers will set the levels for the driveway for drainage purposes and also check for any Council services, i.e. water pipes, that might be under the driveway location. Applicants will receive notification of approval by post but may proceed with works once the “white pegs” or level markers have been set. Applicants should contact Dial Before You Dig on 1100 before doing any work to make sure there are no underground services in the area to be excavated.
Please Note: Council does not set levels for a Material Change of Use (MCU) application. The plans issued by the designer should show the levels for all crossovers at a scale of 1:50 and these will be assessed by Council.
A fee only applies if the applicant requires an additional access to the property.
