Asset protection inspection

You must apply for an asset protection permit before commencing any building works.

If you are proposing demolition works, construction or extension of a dwelling or construction of a swimming pool, we will inspect our nearby assets.

Arranging an asset protection inspection

You may organise an inspection by filling in the Asset Inspection Request(PDF, 63KB).

The non-refundable fee for an asset protection inspection is $305.

We will inspect our assets abutting the site of the building works and report on their condition.

Our assets include:

  • footpaths
  • nature strips
  • street trees
  • kerbs
  • channels and drains
  • roads and right of ways.

We will assess the proposed building works for any potential damage to our assets. If we find that it is likely, you will be required to lodge a security deposit.

Requesting a final inspection

When all works are completed, you are required to request a final inspection.

We will inspect our assets near the site to determine if they have been damaged by the work. If damage is found, we will send you a quotation for us to fix any identified damage. Alternatively, you may engage a contractor to fix our assets.
