Road, verge and footpath obstruction permits
Any 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 firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
- late applications will not be processed
- five full business days are required for obstructions not involving any traffic management
- ten full business days are required for applications which involve traffic management
- applications will only be processed once all documents have been received.
