Deliveries To Site

If you are receiving a delivery you are not required to obtain a permit. The following information will assist you with defining a delivery.

What is a delivery?

A delivery is short term and involves:

  • Movement of materials directly from truck to site;
  • No use of plant and equipment;
  • A legally parked truck; and
  • Where access for pedestrians and traffic is maintained.

 Other frequent scenarios that are classed as a delivery.

  • Commercial business receiving goods from a truck and unloading by hand;
  • Commercial business that require a forklift for deliveries.  A spotter is required for this type of delivery.
  • Building sites - truck with a forklift attached to the rear required for brick deliveries.  A spotter is required for this type of delivery and materials must not be place on council land;
  • Trucks entering and exiting site.  This may require traffic controllers to hold pedestrians and traffic for safety;
  • Soil delivery by truck, unloading into a wheelbarrow and taken immediately into site;
  • Concrete agitator (no line pump) and where the concrete delivery is pouted straight into site.  Pedestrian traffic must be maintained;
  • Unloading plant and equipment immediately into the site using existing vehicle access (driveway).
