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.
Summary of Proposed Policy
The Draft Road Seal Extension Policy 2018 is a non-statutory policy that identifies how private requests for seal extensions will be considered, prioritised and funded.
The objective of the Draft Policy is to set out, in a clear and transparent manner, Council’s criteria for considering private seal extension requests from ratepayers and/or residents. It outlines how and when Council will enter into arrangements with ratepayers and/or residents to ensure consistency, fairness and equity.
The draft Policy covers the following matters:
- Funding criteria
- Future Maintenance
