The main purpose of issuing permits for use of unmade public roads is to provide statutory authorisation to property owners allowing them to use Council property for private business purposes.
Pursuant to Section 223 of the Local Government Act 1999, if Council proposes to grant an authorisation or permit that:
- would result in any part of a road being fenced, enclosed or partitioned as to impede the passage of traffic to a material degree ;or
- in relation to a use or activity for which public consultation is required under the regulations, the Council must, before granting the authorisation or permit, follow the relevant steps set out in its public consultation policy.
Approved permits will be issued for a period of five (5) years commencing on 1 July 2023 and expiring on 30 June 2028.
