Highways licences and permits



Request a dropped kerb or vehicle crossing site inspection


Information on dropped kerbs and vehicle crossings can be found on the Report problems with roads and pavements​ page.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​

​We aim to ensure that the highway (i.e. roads, pavements, and local footpaths) is kept clear and safe at all times. On occasion we recognise that you may need to obstruct the highway, for example if you are carrying out works to your property.

In cases where you do need to obstruct the highway, you need to apply for a licence or permit to do so.

Examples of when this may occur include:

  • skips on the highway;
  • building materials on the highway;
  • placing a structure on the highway;
  • projection over the highway;
  • scaffolding and hoarding on the highway;
  • temporary closure of the highway;
  • placing a crane or access platform on the highway;
  • abnormal loads;
  • planting vegetation;
  • vehicular crossings; and
  • events on the highway

The relevant applications can be found in the Documents section at the bottom of the page.
