It is the Owner or Builder’s responsibility to ensure that infrastructure assets are protected and not damaged as a result of any building construction works on the site. Council infrastructure assets include anything outside the property boundary such as:
• Stormwater Drains and Pits
• Kerb and Channel
• Street Trees
An Asset Protection Permit will protect the owner of the site against paying for damage to our assets that existed prior to the commencement of the building works.
Fees and Charges
• $121 Permit Fee
• $768 Security Bond (refundable)
The security bond will be refunded provided there has not been any additional damage to Council infrastructure assets on completion of the works.
An Asset Protection Permit is required for any building works, including:
• Building construction works
• Demolition works
• Building relocations and house removal
• Fencing on a boundary to a public place
• Construction of a swimming pool
An Asset Protection Permit must be obtained a minimum of seven (7) days prior to the commencement of any works to enable our Infrastructure Officer to undertake an inspection and for the owner and builder to receive a copy of the permit.
If you believe that the Asset Protection Permit damage report did not cover all of the pre-existing damage, you must contact our office on 5522 2328 and arrange for an on-site inspection with our Development Liaison Officer prior to commencing any works.
