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.
- Use our Shared Cost Fencing Guidelines to help you work out how and where we'll contribute towards the cost of fencing.
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
- ABN (Australian Business Number)
- GST applicable (separately).
Forward copies of the quotes to us by:
- Brimbank Engineering Services
Brimbank City Council
PO Box 70
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.
