Activity on Thoroughfare (Also previously known as Activities on Road or Verge)

A permit for Activity on Thoroughfare is required where a person utilises the verge and/or road for the storage of one or more of the following:
- skip bin
- sea container
- temporary fencing
- sand/mulch/loose material
- other building materials (bricks, paving etc.)
*A PAT application does not provide permission for the parking of construction vehicles on the verge or road.
