Applying for a temporary road closure permit

If you are planning a parade or street event that will close a public road, you need to have a temporary road closure permit. This is approval given for a road to be closed to vehicles and/or pedestrians at a certain place and point in time. It means you can hold your event to the standards required by law, and that a traffic management plan ensures everything runs smoothly. Gaining approval also means you won’t be fined, as closing a road unannounced is illegal.

You’ll need to:

Let us know in writing at least three to six months before the event. This gives us time to consult with and gain approval from everyone involved, as well as advertise the closure publicly for any objections

Applicant to source a Traffic Management company to prepare a traffic management plan, once you have been given approval. The preparation needs to be done by a Site Traffic Management Supervisor (STMS) with delegated authority with the Upper Hutt City Council.  This will need to be approved to make sure the event will be safe and run with minimal disruption. Traffic Management companies are listed under traffic management equipment/services in the Yellow Pages.
