Road Seal Extension Policy (Private Seal Policy)

Roading is Council’s single largest spend and is of significant public interest, particularly in relation to the sealing of unsealed roads. Occasionally Council is approached by local ratepayers and/or residents seeking the mechanism for sealing of their respective roads. It is therefore necessary to have a consistent and transparent approach to private requests for seal extensions.
