Community Road Closures
Community events are an excellent way to promote neighbourhood spirit and encourage strong connections.
A community road closure is a joint effort and relies on the involvement of the Council and local residents.
Temporary road closures can be granted for community organised activities such as:
- community events
- street parties.
Public roads are the responsibility of local councils and include local roads, streets, laneways and walkways. If the planned event is to be held on a public road you must first seek approval from the Council.
Arterial roads are the responsibility of the State Government. If the planned event is to be held on an arterial road (please refer to list of arterial roads below) you will need to seek approval from the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT)
