Build Over Easement Policy

The Maroondah City Council Build Over Easement policy aims to:

  • Ensure that Council fulfils its statutory obligations with regard to the report and consent process for building works over easements vested in Council.
  • Provide guidance to Council staff and the public generally with regard to Council’s assessment approach in terms of building works over easements vested in Council.
  • Protect Council’s interests with regard to easements, assets within easements, future possible easement assets, ongoing operational maintenance requirements for the Drainage Network (including access), works associated with asset renewal and flooding considerations, including overland flows during storm events.
  • Provide high level advice to applicants, including clear and concise conditions when consents are granted and robust and defensible justification(s) if an application for consent is refused by Council.
  • Allow for building works over an easement in an appropriate, fair and consistent manner.
