Road, verge and footpath obstruction permits

nullAny person obstructing part of a public thoroughfare such as roads, footpaths or verges with equipment such as cranes, cherry pickers, ladders, mobile scaffolding, skip bins, excavation works and filming requires a permit. Obstructing parking bays with anything other than licensed vehicles also requires a permit.

Whatever the reason for a permit, approval is required prior to commencement to ensure the health and safety of the community. The approval process also ensures that any proposed work has a minimal impact on the public and businesses and that those who are affected are notified.

All photography/filming requests in the city should be directed to in the first instance.
