Apply for an Occupation of Street permit (hoarding)
Do I need a hoarding permit?
If your building work requires any part of a public access way (such as a footpath) or area of Council property to be fenced off, you need a hoarding permit.
Hoardings and barricades usually need to be installed around building sites to keep members of the public safe and secure the site when unattended.
You may still need a hoarding permit, even if:
- a building permit is not required, or
- work is not 'building work' (for example, painting).
If you are erecting a building or temporary structure across a street alignment or Council land, you will also need to apply for a Protection of the Public (hoarding) permit.
$217.50 per 15 metres, plus $90 inspection fee per month.
What you need to provide with your application
- A full site plan
- A copy of the contractor’s public liability insurance ($20 million minimum)
- If required, a copy of an approved traffic management plan (in accordance with AS1742.3 and VicRoads Worksite Code of Practice). For more information go to our Traffic management plans web page
