A crossover is the access to your property from the property line to the road edge. This is within the road reserve and therefore special conditions apply to the construction and maintenance of crossovers. There is a law requiring property owners or their agents to submit an application for approval to the City to construct a crossover prior to actual construction taking place. Approval can be sought through either a Technical Services Clearance Application or Application to Modify or Upgrade Existing Crossover.
New Developments – Technical Services Clearance
The Technical Services department requires that all new developments within the City of Belmont seek Technical Services Clearance as part of compliance with the City’s Local Laws, Policies and Local Government Act.
Technical Services Clearance shall be sought in conjunction with the Building Permit application so the City can advise the applicant of any conflicting issues at the development stages. Should this clearance not be sought and non-compliances are identified, the City reserves the right to request modifications for which the property owner will bear the full cost. The City may impose penalties under the Local Laws and Local Government Act and undertake necessary actions to rectify the non-compliances and recover all associated costs. The Technical Services Clearance will also assess and clear any Engineering conditions of the Development Approval.
The Assessment includes; Crossover(s), Stormwater Drainage, Verge Assets, Finished Floor Levels, Vehicle Parking and Manoeuvrability, Easements and Landscape Plans.
The below application form should be completed and submitted to the City with relevant supporting documentation. A non-refundable fee is required to be paid on submission of the application.
|Single Residential Development
|Grouped / Multi Residential Development
|Commercial / Industrial Development
