Apply for an asset protection permit

An asset protection permit ensures public assets such as footpaths, driveways and nature strips are kept safe during building work.

If your project is likely to impact public infrastructure, then you will need to apply for an asset protection permit in addition to a building permit. This may include: 

  • demolition work
  • building works valued more than $20,000
  • pool or spa works valued more $10,000
  • works that involve heavy machinery, concrete trucks, cranes or excavation.

You will need to submit your application at least 7 days prior to commencing work.
