Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability insurance ensures that the public are safe and liability for any accidents is covered by the person undertaking these construction works on your behalf. A minimum of $10 million worth of pubic liability cover is required. Applicants are advised that proof of cover in the form of a Certificate of Currency is necessary before the application can be filled out on your behalf. We keep a Public Liability Register for this purpose to make things easier for repeat applicants. Each year a new Certificate of Currency must be supplied before any new applications can be lodged.
Each permit is assessed on the requirements of the job, depending on location, type of work, etc. The Permit Fee must be paid at the time of application.
The works manager may undertake reinstatement of affected infrastructure to Council standards. However, if Council Works Unit is requested to undertake the reinstatement a private works order form must be completed and signed by the customer.
Depending on the works, if you require an inspection, please contact our Development Liaison Unit on (03) 5522 2328, giving a minimum 24 hours notice.
