The permit-holder is responsible for any damage caused by works, and the damage must be reinstated to Council’s satisfaction. There is a choice of repairing Council’s assets or asking Council to complete repair works at your expense.
If the permit-holder requests that Council carry out this reinstatement on their behalf, they must provide written authorisation to Council. The cost of repair will be deducted from the security deposit, with any remaining security deposit refunded. If the works cost more than the security deposit, an invoice for these works will be issued.
If you decide to independently reinstate damages, please notify Council after rectification so a re-inspection can be arranged.
Please be aware as some Council Reserves have high environmental value these may require Council to undertake the reinstatement works.
Please note: should Council attend the site 3 times or more to inspect reinstatement, you may incur an additional inspection fee of $130.
If no advice is received about the reinstatement from the permit-holder, Council may undertake the reinstatement works at the expense of the permit-holder.
