Crossovers

A Crossover is the section of your driveway between the property boundary (including any footpath) and the road that allows vehicles to access the property.

Do I need approval to construct or upgrade a crossover?

Yes, Residents/landowners must apply to the Town to construct a new crossover or upgrade an existing crossover by satisfactorily completing the Application for Permits form and submitting along with a site plan for approval.

Application for Permits

The site plan should indicate all assets within the verge (such as footpaths, street trees, road, drainage lids and property boundaries) and the proposed crossover works (including dimensions and construction materials).

How to construct your crossover?

If you are planning to install a new crossover, please follow the design requirements outlined in the Town’s Specification for the Construction of Crossovers. Any trees located on the verge adjacent to the property must be protected in accordance with the Town’s Street Tree Protection Policy.
