Frequently Asked Questions

I am a resident of a property abutting the planned works, how can I gain access to or exit my property during periods of limited access?

Should you need to enter or exit your property while the works are in progress, we ask that you speak to the traffic controllers on site who will be able to safely direct you through the work site.

Will Emergency Services have access to my property or the road during the planned works?

Yes, Emergency Services access will be provided at all times.

What can I do if the planned works damage the crossover or irrigation I installed on the verge of my property?

All formally constructed and surfaced crossovers together with any operational verge reticulation systems that may be affected by the works will be reinstated at no cost to the resident.

If your reticulation is likely to be affected by footpath works, we would ask that prior to the commencement date you contact the relevant officer on the below details to arrange a time for the City to inspect your operational reticulation systems.

What is a Developer Contribution Plan?

A Development Contribution Plan (DCP) provides for the equitable sharing of the costs of new or upgraded infrastructure required as a result of increased demand generated in a defined area.

A DCP enables the application of development contributions and supports the coordination and timely provision of infrastructure. The City’s Town Planning Scheme No.4 provides the statutory framework and authority for the City to determine and collect development contributions.
