Heavy vehicle permit for residential property

Large truck parked on suburban street

A permit is required for residents needing to keep any vehicle weighing over 4.5 tonnes or over 7 metres in length.

Keeping our neighbourhoods streets as free from heavy vehicle traffic as possible is a priority for Council  By requiring heavy vehicles kept on residential properties to have a permit we are seeking to: 

  • avoid excessive noise from large trucks
  • keep pedestrians and other drivers safe
  • prevent damage to footpaths, nature strips, kerbs, street pavements and trees
  • minimise fumes and related smells from heavy vehicles.

Permit charges

non-refundable application fee of $82.20 must be paid when submitting the complete application form.

Once an application is approved a permit fee of $342.20 per annum is required.
