Although driveways are constructed across the road reserve, the responsibility to provide and maintain access to properties ultimately lies with property owners. New and altered driveways require approval from Council prior to any work occurring in the road reserve. Council can also provide copies of standard drawings for the construction of concrete driveways.
For installation of new downpipes, or if downpipes become damaged or blocked within the footpath section, including the connection into the concrete kerb and channel, property owners also require approval from Council prior to any excavation of the road reserve.
Please contact our Customer Service Centre on 4913 5000 or 1300 790 919 or submit an Application for Works on Road Reserve Permit online.
