Planning a temporary road closure
Closing a road for more than 5 minutes without permission is illegal and you can be fined.
We follow a process for granting special approval to temporarily close a road to vehicles and/or pedestrians. This means you can hold your event safely under an approved TMP compliantly.
Getting a temporary road closure permit
To get a permit you'll need to:
- Let us know in writing at least 3-6 months before the event.
- Liaise with all affected residents and or businesses. Proof that you've done this will need to be presented to council by a certain date.
- Council will publicly advertise the closure to allow for objections.
- Contact a registered contractor to request a Temporary Traffic Management Plan (TMP). A TMP is required as part of the formal application to Council for a temporary road closure or event. The plan must meet the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management. TMP forms are available on the NZTA website:
