How to use this guide

Start at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time until you know whether you need any of the following permits before starting works:

  • Memorandum of Authorisation (VicRoads)
  • Planning Permit
  • Tree Works Permit
  • Vehicular Crossover Permit
  • Asset Protection Permit
  • Road or Footpath Occupancy Permit.

Before you begin

Check for easements on your property. When an easement is obstructed, it can prevent important maintenance work and block the flow of stormwater. If your plans impact an easement, either modify the plans or enquire whether your proposed development qualifies for approval.

 This is a complex process that is normally carried out by a building contractor.
