          INFORMATION FOR ROAD OR FOOTPATH OBSTRUCTIONS
Who needs a permit
Any person obstructing any part of a public thoroughfare, including roads, footpaths or verges,
requires a permit.

Permits for road and footpath obstructions are not restricted to cranes and cherry pickers. If
you are using a ladder, mobile scaffolding, a bin, carrying out excavation works, or even filming
then a permit is required. Put simply, any activity that creates an obstruction will require a
permit. Vehicles, machinery or builder’s bins are not permitted on footpaths or verges.

If the activity requires a full or part road closure, consultation with affected authorities and
newspaper advertisements may be required. It will be your responsibility to notify all persons
directly affected by the closure in writing, 2-5 days prior to the operation. A Traffic
Management Plan will also be required prior to the closure. You will be required to meet all
costs associated with the closure, which may include advertising, signage, barricading, traffic
controllers and any damage caused by the operations.

How to apply for a permit
An “Application To Obstruct Road Or Footpath” form can be obtained by either contacting the
Approval Services Unit on (08) 9461-3178, or in person at Council House at 27 St Georges
Terrace Perth or via our web site at www.cityofperth.wa.gov.au.

Forward your completed “Application To Obstruct Road Or Footpath” form to the Approval
Services Unit by either facsimile, post or in person. A Technical Officer will assess the
application and if satisfied with the proposal, a permit with conditions will be prepared and
faxed to the number indicated on your application form.

How much does it cost
There is a non-refundable application fee for each permit as follows:
• $60.00 (includes GST) for typical permits;
• $110.00 (includes GST) for permits that require a road closure;
• $250.00 (includes GST) for filming that require a significant obstruction of roads or footpath.

Other relevant fees such as parking or advertising are applicable depending on your
requirements. Each application will be assessed individually, and on some occasions a bond
may be requested prior to the operations commencing.

Note
• Minor obstructions require a minimum of 2 full business days for processing whilst
  full road closures require 10 business days. Activities that could cause a nuisance
  to neighbouring properties eg noise, disruption, restricted access etc, will require a
  minimum of 3 business days as applicants will be required to give written notice to
  affected properties. Processing commences after all relevant documents and
  payments have been received.
• Applications which might be required for Weekends or Mondays, must be received
  by the Approval Services Unit by 4.00pm the Wednesday prior to the date required.
• LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
