You need Report and Consent to erect a hoarding on any property boundary that faces a street or laneway.
A hoarding protects and separates the public from building and construction works.
It can include a:
- temporary boarded fence
- solid hoarding
- gantry (a tall metal frame that supports heavy machines such as cranes)
If the hoarding extends more than 300 mm past the property boundary or if it is erected onto a laneway, you also need to apply for a Road and Footpath Occupancy Permit.
