​Driveway Lines Application

Council often receives a high volume of enquiries regarding parked vehicles obstructing access to residential driveways. One option that is available to residents is the installation of driveway line markings to better delineate the driveway and discourage illegal parking.

Residents must complete an Application Form to be considered for the service. On receipt of the application, a Council Engineer will inspect the resident's driveway on-site and ensure that the resident is eligible for this service. Once this has been confirmed, the resident must pay the applicable fee. If your residence is on a strata title, you should contact your strata management company in order to seek endorsement for your application.
