Hoarding Permits

A hoarding permit allows a builder to store building construction materials on a street, way or other public place behind a fence or hoarding. Materials may include bricks, timber, iron, site offices and storage sheds.

A hoarding licence may be required when there is little or no room for the storage of building materials on site due to the nature of the building design or the size of the lot.

When applying for a hoarding licence, please ensure the following details are submitted:

  • a completed hoarding licence application form;
  • a site plan (two copies) to a scale no less than 1:200 indicating site boundaries, existing structures and any other site feature. The site plan must also show the proposed location and size of the hoarding; and
  • a Traffic Management Plan if not previously provided to the City as part of a building licence application.

The application will be assessed and approval may be granted for the use of the street, way or public place, depending on the impact it may have on the local area and the community. Alternative use of another street, way or other public place, may also be agreed upon by mutual consent.
