An easement is an area of land on your property that council and other authorities are allowed to access.

Before building or landscaping check if:

If possible, change your plans so that the building works do not block or cover the easement. You can't build over an access pit.

If you can't change your plans, submit a building over easements inquiry. 

Submit an inquiry

We will get back to you with either:

  • instructions for how to apply for building over easement approval
  • a request to change your designs before applying for building over easement approval
  • an explanation of why we can't approve your proposed development.
