Closing a road for an activity or event
If you require a road closure for any activity or event, please complete Council's application form.
Your Traffic Management Plan is required to be submitted through the Submitica website, for our Roading Service Providers.
Both the Council application form and Submitica must be completed at least 60 calendar days prior to your proposed road closure date.
Under the Transport Regulations 1965, Council is required to publicly advertise at least 42 calendar days prior to a road closure. This is to allow for objections from the public to be received and considered by Council.
Your application will be passed on to WestLink BOP who are contracted to process and approve these applications on behalf of Council.
Please note: Council reserves the right to decline any road closure application. Road closures can not proceed without Council/WestLink BOP approval.
See terms and conditions on the application form.
For further information, contact the Roading Engineering East/West on 07 571 8008.
Objection to a road closure
Any person affected by a road closure may lodge an objection to Council. Objections must be lodged at least 28 calendar days before the proposed closure for Council's consideration. Objections can be emailed through to the Customer Service Team. For more information on the process, go to Transport Regulations 1965.
