Temporary Vehicle Access to a Park or Reserve | Redland City Council

Temporary Vehicle Access to a Park or Reserve

Driving a vehicle onto a Redland City Council controlled area is not permitted without prior approval.  Approval will only be granted where temporary vehicle access is required for an approved activity, for example resident property access, events and the access will not cause damage to our parks or public assets.

Please be aware that some activities or works may trigger the need to lodge an application for planning, building, plumbing or other associated legislation.  If the purpose of the temporary vehicle access has triggered an application as above, please ensure you provide a copy of the relevant approval (s) with this application.
