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 we can create a traffic management plan so that 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 submit your plan, once you have been given approval. This will need to be approved by making sure the event will be safe and run with minimal disruption. – they’re listed under traffic management equipment/services in the Yellow Pages.
