Crossovers

What is a Crossover?

A crossover is the part of the driveway from the kerb line to the property line.

Do I Need Approval to Construct or Change a Crossover?

As a landowner, you must apply for approval to construct a new crossover or to amend an existing crossover.

Crossover construction and design applications are free and can take up to five (5) days to process.

Crossover Specification and Design Requirements

The City has a crossover specification document with information on crossover design requirements.
 
These design requirements must be adhered to when constructing or changing a crossover.

How to Apply for Council Contribution Toward the Cost of Crossovers

Council provides a one-off crossover contribution of $300 per property. To be eligible for the contribution, the crossover must comply with the City's Crossover Specification document. The council contribution can only be given to the property owner or owners adjoining the crossover.   

How to apply:

To apply for a council contribution, a crossover claim form must be filled out with the adjoining property owner’s details.

Payment of Council contribution is subject to the crossover complying with the City’s Crossover Specification and will be paid via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) only. In order to receive payment, you must provide your bank details. 

If the crossover has been constructed with brick pavers, a receipt or delivery docket for the limestone used in the construction is also required.
