Before carrying out any works in the Road Reserve you will need permission from City of Parramatta or Roads & Maritime Services.
Temporary Road or Footpath Occupancy
If you are carrying out work that does not involve excavation of any surface within the Road Reserve, you need to apply for a Temporary Road Occupancy Permit. Depending on the nature and location of the work, various conditions will apply.
Road Opening and Temporary Occupancy PERMIT for excavation of Roads, Footpaths, Kerb & Gutter or Nature Strip
A Road Opening and Temporary Occupancy Permit is required for all works involving excavation of Roads, Footpaths, Kerb & Gutter or Nature Strip. The cost for the permit is calculated according to the area and type of surface to be excavated and is the scheduled fee for Council to permanently restore all surfaces once your works are complete.
Unless previously approved in writing, you are not permitted to carry out permanent restoration using your own contractors.
Fees for Temporary Road or Footpath Occupancy and Road Opening Permits are set out in City of Parramatta’s 2016 - 2017 City of Parramatta Fees and Charges.
