Residential crossover requirements

A crossover is an extension of a driveway from the edge of the property boundary and provides access for vehicles across the verge to the road.

There are different requirements for residential crossovers based on a single property, grouped and multiple dwellings and whether a property is located in a Housing Opportunity Area.

For further details on the specifications on crossovers, dimensions, permitted materials and existing infrastructure such as footpaths or kerb ramps, are described in the Crossover Guidelines.

Documents that are of assistance are the technical specifications and standard drawings for residential and commercial crossovers.

Residential crossover subsidy

Residents can obtain a subsidy payment from the City for a standard crossover if it is the first crossover or the crossover has been replaced. Please complete the application form/statutory declaration to obtain the subsidy, and submit it along with the Application for Electronic Funds Transfer form to the City. Conditions apply.
