Asset protection permit

Asset protection permit

When doing building work, you must follow safe building practices that protect nearby Council assets from damage. Council assets include footpaths, kerbs, vehicle crossovers, nature strips and trees.

Our asset protection requirements aim to reduce our costs and provide a safe environment for the community. They are included in our Building Site Code of Practice and General Local Laws.

Types of developments requiring an Asset Protection Permit:

  • One unit or house built on a single lot

 

Front Load Bin Permit

You must not place front load bins or other bulk rubbish containers on a road, nature strip, reserve, or other Council land unless you have a Skip Bin Permit.

This permit is required in addition to the asset protection permit, and helps reduce damage caused to nature strips.

Builders of new residential dwellings should follow the same application steps but use the following form instead of the Skip Bin Permit application form.

Builders will need to pay a separate permit fee for each bin that will remain throughout the construction period.
