To have machinery on road and paths (e.g. concrete pump truck, mixers, cherry pickers, crane, scissor lifts) you must get prior approval from Council by applying for a Standing Plant permit as follows:
- Complete the Standing Plant Permit Application Form (PDF 170.4KB)
- Prepare a traffic control plan indicating proposed signs, alternative pedestrian routes, traffic lane widths, etc.
- Pay the permit fee applicable (refer to application form). This must be paid upon application.
The standing plant permit fee is for a period of two weeks. After this time the applicant is required to renew the permit, renewing it fortnightly from then on.
A Minimum of five days' notice is required to process an application.
If the vehicle or machinery is to be located on or within 50 metres of a State or Regional road, RMS approval must be obtained. Contact the RMS Traffic Management Centre on (02) 8396 1425 or (02) 8396 1425
NOTE: 3.2 metres minimum lane widths must be maintained to allow traffic to pass. If only one lane is open, Traffic Controllers need to be adopted.
