Working in Road Reserves

To conduct works within a Murrindindi Shire Council road reserve - such as constructing a vehicle crossing or connecting to a drain - you must first apply for Council consent. You must also apply for an Asset Protection Permit; this can be done at the same time. Please click the link below to complete the online form at least 10 business days prior to scheduled works. Fees do apply and are outlined in the table below.
