Activities on Road Reserve
The Road Reserve, is defined as " The area from the property boundary on one side of the road to the property boundary on the other side of the road". This includes the berm (grass verge), footpath and carriageway (Road). At no time is it permitted to use this area for storage.
The road corridor is any urban street or rural road (including Paper Roads), from boundary to boundary, encompassing road and footpath formation and berm.
To occupy a road reserve you need to apply for a licence, there are specific requirements that need to be met to ensure the continued safety for all road users.
Some activities may be permitted and must be licensed by The Council:
- Grazing Stock
- Road Signs
- Install pipes or cables
- Storage on Road Reserve
The council roading department can advise you on the authorisation requirements for your project. Contact us
