Verge with a clear footpath

Verge permits

During building or demolition works a verge permit is required for the use of the City’s verge for temporarily parking vehicles, storing materials, locating a bulk bin or accessing private property from the public road.

A verge permit is compulsory.

There are important conditions which must be complied with when using the verge. Where there is a street tree on the verge it will need to be protected and maintained during the construction period. Details of the Tree Protection Zone and your responsibilities are provided in the guidelines. Please refer to the documents below in the Related Links section.

Photographic evidence of the status of the verge at the time of application must be provided to the City. A security deposit is to be paid and will be held by the City to execute repairs, if required.

Please refer to the current fees and charges for the cost of a Verge Permit and the applicable security deposit.
