Operational Works

A development permit for Operational Works is required in order to conduct any development works and/or landscaping works within the road reserve.

More specifically, Operational Works encompasses:

  • excavating or filling of land (i.e. earthworks, including changes to ground levels for retaining walls);
  • civil works for new subdivisions (i.e. connection to Council and external infrastructure) and other works associated with a material change of use of premises or reconfiguring a lot; 
  • placing an advertising device on premises; undertaking road works on Council roads; and
