Non Council Roads:
Council can only issue permits for works within a road reserve for roads that are managed by Council.
Council cannot issue a permit to work within a road reserve on a road that is managed by VicRoads, Parks Victoria, DEWLP or any other private roads. Permits for works undertaken on land managed by any of these agencies should be directed to the relevant authority:
VicRoads: 13 11 71
Parks Victoria: 13 19 63
DEWLP: 03 5336 6856

Public Liability insurance is important as it generally provides financial protection to both the public and the responsible persons conducting the works, in the event of an incident resulting in damages or injury to third party assets or persons.
Proof of certificate of currency is necessary before the application can be completed. We advise you to include the certificate of currency with the initial application form so we can process your application without delay.
The minimum policy coverage for persons/companies conducting works within the road reserve is $10 million.
