Section 221—Alteration of road
A person (other than the council or a person acting under some other statutory authority) must not make an alteration to a public road unless authorised to do so by the council.
A Driveway Access Permit is required to obtain approval to complete any of the following:
• Install a new Driveway Crossover, Invert and Water Table
• Widen an existing Driveway Crossover, Invert and Water Table
• Replace an existing Driveway Crossover, Invert and Water Table
A driveway access is made up of the following parts:
A driveway invert and water table – the laid back section of kerb that allows vehicles to cross the kerb. (Note, driveway inverts are not required in streets where a mountable kerb exists)
A driveway crossover – the section of the driveway located between the driveway invert/kerb and the front property boundary.
The process for obtaining a Driveway Access Permit is simple. Please complete all necessary information on the application form.
Council can provide a quote for these works if the house is established or if the new development is at the lock up stage of the build. If our quote is accepted, an invoice will be created and emailed to you. Once the invoice has been paid in full, the works will be scheduled with Council’s contractor within 2 to 4 weeks.
A private contractor can be engaged to complete the approved works, however it is the owners responsibility to ensure the works are completed to Council standards.
Please upload a plan or diagram, indicating the proposed driveway access dimensions and location, including distance to the nearest side boundary, any trees, service pits or poles. Alternatively, please supply a copy of the building site works plan, with proposed driveway dimensions and location clearly marked on it.
The application will be assessed and you will be informed of the outcome via email within 15 business days.
If you wish to discuss your application during this time please contact the Infrastructure Audit Unit on IAU@marion.sa.gov.au or 7420 6447.
