Work Zone Permit

Should you wish to conduct any activity or trade which obstructs part of a public thoroughfare (including roads, parking bays, footpaths or verges) the Town must be notified prior to doing so.  

This notification is required in the form of a Work Zone Permit application. 

Some examples of when a Work Zone Permit would be needed are as follows: 

  • Construction/landscaping works – storage of materials on verge, skip bin on verge or road reserve. 
  • Work areas – scaffolding, painting, use of machinery and equipment. 
  • Not for profit fundraising activities such as membership drives, promotions, collections, sausage sizzles. 
  • Sea containers on the verge or road reserve.
