Drainage, Verge and Crossovers

The Town requires that all new developments seek infrastructure clearance.  This clearance must be sought prior to or at the time of lodging a building permit application. The Town can then advise the applicant of any conflicting issues at the development stage.

If clearance is not sought and conflicts are later identified, the Town reserves the right to request modifications for which the property owner will bear the full cost.

The infrastructure clearance will also assess and clear any engineering conditions of the development approval which may include; new crossovers, stormwater drainage, modifications to verge assets, finished floor levels, vehicle parking and manoeuvrability, easements and landscape plans.

  • CROSSOVERS AND VEHICLE ACCESS - Council approval is required prior to the construction of a new crossover, or the modification of an existing crossover.  They must be constructed to the Town’s standards and specifications.  Where a new premises is constructed the Town will contribute 50% towards the cost of the new crossover up to $500.  This subsidy will also apply when upgrading an existing bitumen crossover to current standards and specifications.  To download the Town’s current standard drawing, specifications and an Application Form please click here
