Shared Cost Fencing Program

We've expanded our Shared Cost Fencing Program. We now contribute to the cost of new fencing between a public park or reserve and other properties.

We'll continue to contribute to the cost of fencing between Council kindergartens; maternal child health centres etc. and other properties.

What we need from you

  • A quote from two independent fencing contractors before ANY works start.
  • You can tell us your preferred contractor.

We'll only deal with contractors with a registered ABN (Australian Business Number).

Your quotes must clearly show the:

  • location of the fence
  • height and type of fence (materials) needed
  • type of work to be undertaken e.g. repaired/replaced/new
  • name of the contractor quoting the works
  • price
  • ABN (Australian Business Number)
  • GST applicable (separately).

Forward copies of the quotes to us by:

Mail to:

  • Brimbank Engineering Services 
    Brimbank City Council
    PO Box 70
    VIC 3020

Hand delivery to our Customer Service Centres at:

  • Brimbank Community and Civic Centre
  • Keilor Community Hub
  • Watergardens (in Sydenham Library)


When we get your quotes, your request will be assessed. This will include a site visit. You'll be advised further in writing about our decision.

Your other responsibilities

It's your responsibility to

  • Comply with any covenants, restrictions or caveats indicated on property titles regarding fencing requirements.
  • Clear the fence line of any obstructions including concrete paths.
  • Ensure that you (or your contractor) get  permission from our Parks and Gardens Department before entering Council reserves. A separate application needs to be made to our Parks and Gardens Department, with a minimum of 3 business days’ notice, before works commence.
  • Seek other approvals. For example, applicable building permits, permission from Council to erect a High Corner Fence, etc.
