In submitting your application, we require as a minimum:
- Site plan of the area with all measurements and features of the street, including driveways, trees and street furniture - for example, electricity pits or poles, Council stormwater pits, sewer pits, Telstra/NBN pits or posts, hydrants, bus stops, signage or similar
- Copy of the Council-issued Legal Point of Discharge Report
It is recommended you also supply the following documents if you have them, as you may need these if your application is successful:
- A copy of the Council Approved Drainage Plan if the works relate to a Town Planning Approval, or where previously requested by Council. If this is not required, then a sketch plan of the proposed works must be provided.
- Traffic Management Plan as per the Road Management Act 2004 and the Road Safety (Traffic Management) Regulations 2019. Council requests you obtain your plans through an experienced provider to ensure high-quality plans are produced, as poor-quality plans in the past have not met these basic requirements (hand-drawn plans will not be accepted). The Traffic Management Plan should cover temporary changes to traffic conditions, road and footpath closures, and traffic detours. Council will assess the impacts on movement and safety for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles (check VicRoads website: Register of prequalified contractors & consultants).
Please note: If the works are being conducted in an easement, a Traffic Management Plan will not be required.;
Council may also require:
- A copy of a Neighbour Notification Letter advising affected residents of the works, and/or
- Supporting documentation including Department of Transport (VicRoads) approval if undertaking work on an arterial road
Please note: any works on arterial roads will also require a permit and Memorandum of Authorisation (MOA) supplied by the Department of Transport (VicRoads) and a Traffic Management Plan from a prequalified contractor and consultant.
The Stormwater Connection Application advice may take up to 10 working days depending on complexity of the works involved.
If more information is required to complete your application, you will get a letter with advice via email. If Council does not receive the required document(s) within 1 month from the dated letter, your application will be cancelled and you will need to apply again on a later date. Please note the application fee is non-refundable.
