Permit fee and permit bond

The non-refundable asset protection permit fee and refundable asset protection permit bond is based upon the type of works and is outlined in the table below.

There may be special circumstances where the asset protection permit bond is increased at Council’s discretion due to:

  • the extent of the works
  • the potential to cause damage
  • site conditions
  • the proposed development.
  • the site is located on an arterial road.

Please note that a single street frontage is typically 15-20m wide. Corner blocks are considered to be 2 street frontages

Fees to extend an Asset Protection Permit

The fee to extend an Asset Protection Permit is charged at half the current applicable permit fee and must be paid before an Asset Protection Permit extension has been granted.

The Asset Protection Permit bond will be retained until the works are complete.

Council may require an additional bond be paid as part of a request to extend an Asset Protection Permit, if the extent of damage or nature of works justifies this.
