Vehicle Crossing Inspections

  • I will notify the Council two working days prior to excavation to confirm location and make arrangements for consequent inspections.
  • Telephone  (03) 347 2887


  • I will construct a vehicle crossing (entranceway) that complies with any Resource Consent and meets Council specifications from the formed roadway to my property. Between the initial construction and final surfacing of the vehicle crossing, the crossing will be kept in good condition to allow for the safe passage of pedestrians.
  • I note that stamped concrete, coloured concrete, cobbles and non-standard paving blocks are NOT permitted.
  • I understand that all costs are the responsibility of the property owner and that a vehicle crossing that does not meet Council specifications will be upgraded at the property owner's cost.
  • I understand that I will be responsible for the costs associated with any repair work required as a result of settlement or poor workmanship during a 24-month period of maintenance.
I have read and will follow the conditions as set out in the Vehicle Information Pack
