Arrange an inspection for works in a road reserve

Council consent is required to conduct work within a road reserve or easement where Yarra Ranges Council is the responsible authority. This includes:

  • constructing, altering or removing a vehicle crossing
  • service connections
  • drainage and stormwater connections

If the work is to be completed on a declared arterial road (road managed by VicRoads) a planning permit may be required.
