Property Access and Addressing
Any Property Access that involves the erection of a structure within Council’s Road Reserve must be approved through the Vehicular Access application process. Council’s Property Access and Addressing Management Plan covers all matters relating to the administration and management of property accesses on the Kyogle Council road network, and the allocation of property addresses for all properties within the Kyogle Local Government Area.
All forms of Property Access are covered under the Vehicular Access application process. This includes, but is not limited to, access for cars, trucks, buses, motor cycles, pedestrians, wheelchairs, motorised carts and bicycles. Any Property Access that involves the erection of a structure within Council’s Road Reserve must be approved through the Vehicular Access application process.
All properties must have a legal access for vehicles in accordance with Council’s minimum standard requirements. This will apply to Vehicular Accesses which are pre-existing whether or not a permit has been issued previously and for any new crossings for which permits have been issued.
The location of Property Accesses and proposal to construct same must be approved by the Exectuvie Manager Infastructure Works and a Vehicular Access Permit must be issued prior to any works being carried out.
All costs associated with the construction and maintenance of a Property Access is the responsibility of the owner of the land parcel accessed. The responsibility for the Property Access is also transferred with the sale of the land. The allocation of property addresses is the responsibility of Council. Kyogle Council has implemented a system of property addressing which seamlessly combines Urban Street Numbering and Rural Road Numbering. The system is in accordance with the AS/NZS 4819:2003 Geographic information – Rural and urban addressing. In rural areas the allocation of addresses is integrated with the Vehicular Access Application process.
