Asset Protection Permits
If the intended works are considered minor, asset protection may be waived. However, if the following are involved in the works, asset protection MUST be applied for:
- Use of a concrete truck/pump
- Use of a crane
- Access via a Council reserve
- Delivery of materials using heavy machinery over 4 tonnes.
When isn’t asset protection needed?
- Unsealed roads
- Minor works (not involving any of the above)
- VicRoads roads (except where there is a footpath, then asset protection needs to be taken out)
Section 80 notification
Once your building surveyor has received a Section 80 notification, the building permit applicant will receive:
- An invoice for an Asset Protection Permit. (This can be paid for via the link below)
- A report to be completed detailing any pre-existing damage to Council assets.
The asset protection permit fee is a non-refundable administration fee. The standard fee $378.00 and there is no bond required.
Note: Asset protection documents are automatically generated on receipt of the Section 80 notification from the building surveyor, and sent to the building permit applicant.
