The current Local Law regulates the parking of an oversize vehicle on private residential land.
In certain circumstances a Permit will be issued to the owner of the land to permit the parking.
The purpose of the permit assessment is to ensure that the oversize vehicle does not impact on neighbouring properties, public safety or cause damage to Council assets.
Prior to approval being granted a number of considerations will be assessed.
When applying for a permit, provide as much information as part of an application to outline why consideration should be given.
