Traffic Management Plans
Traffic Management Plans are required for activities that change the normal use of a road, including if the activity is on a road, a street or footpath.
This work can include:
- open trenching
- trenchless construction
- installation or removal of chambers, cabinets, poles, pedestals
- tree felling or tree planting
- work on electrical/telephone lines
- driving stakes into the ground etc.
- working in the road corridor
If you plan to do any work on or alongside a road corridor in the District, please contact Council's road maintenance contractor WestLink BOP on 07 577 4680 or email at email@example.com.

Applying for a TMP
If you are planning an event that will affect a road corridor, a TMP will be required as part of your event application. The TMP must be developed by a suitably qualified Site Traffic Management Supervisor (STMS) or professional traffic management company - see a list of names in the table below.
The plan will need to consider:
- safe access and egress (exit) of the event site emergency service access at all times
- other events or work happening at the same time that may impact traffic management
- speed zone
- larger vehicles or vehicles with trailers
Once the TMP has been drafted, it will need to be submitted through an online application called - Submitica and WestLink BOP process and approve these applications on behalf of Council. Please allow at least 10 business days for processing.
Council charges apply for the processing of the application. These charges can be found under Roading in the Fees and Charges Schedule.
The approved TMP then needs to be implemented on the day/s of the event by your chosen traffic management company.
Please note: there is a separate cost for the development and implementation of the TMP, and this will depend on the company you choose to do this work.
If you have an queries or need to check whether you require a TMP, please contact the WestLink BOP at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07 577 4680.
