Parking a Heavy Vehicle in residential areas requires lot of attention on points such as parking doesn’t create a traffic problem or doesn’t result in harm to human health or does not cause any environmental harm etc. In this article we will understand why heavy vehicle parking permission is required, something which very few heavy vehicle course will cover.
Do I need an approval to park a heavy vehicle?
As a heavy vehicle driver you need to have permission to park your heavy vehicle in residential areas if your property is less than 4,000m2 and you are not fulfilling the criteria in the heavy vehicle parking on residential premises fact sheet. You are not supposed to park your vehicle without development authority’s approval.
Who does not need an approval to park his heavy vehicle?
Some heavy vehicles can be parked in a residential area without any permission such as:
- Heavy vehicle using for loading and unloading for a specific time
- Heavy vehicles used by council (must be parked at the council occupied areas)
- Emergency heavy vehicles
Can apply for getting permission to park a heavy vehicle?
Yes, any heavy vehicle driver is allowed to apply for permission for parking his heavy vehicle in a residential area by using the following steps:
- Take permission from Development approval
The first step is to take a development approval by submitting your application online or offline to any relevant development approval.
- Fill up the form
The next step is to fill up the form prescribed for getting a license. It should be noted that only legal person or company are allowed to apply. Any shop name or business name is not a legal entity so can’t become a license holder.
The application form can be downloaded either by using the internet or directly get through a council office. And after filling, send back to officer. It should be noted that the application fee is mentioned in the application form so pay it along sending the form.
- Do amendments if required
After sending the application form you are free to get it back from the council officers if you find that you need to amend something and then after changing it send it back to the officers either by courier or mail.
After grabbing the form by the council officers they can check it thoroughly and if they have any doubt they can call again.
And once they are completely satisfied then will issue a heavy vehicle parking on residential premises license.
