CONDITIONS

1.   TERM

This permit gives the applicant permission to stand and operate the nominated item of plant (such as a crane, concrete pump or other equipment) only for the days approved and only at the area(s) nominated on the application form.  

2.   ERECTION OF WARNING SIGNS AND BARRICADES

The applicant must erect suitable warning signs and barricades in the area where the unit is being operated. The roadway must be properly marked with an adequate number of traffic lane markers to control the flow of traffic.

3.   TRAFFIC REGULATIONS

Permit holders should note that normal traffic regulations apply to all permits issued. This includes enforcement of clearways during sign-posted times. Where lifting takes place over an area not protected by a barricade, a Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) accredited traffic controller must be available to control pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic, in accordance with Australian Standard AS 1742.3 for traffic control.

4.   PUBLIC AND SITE SAFETY/ACCESS

All work undertaken and the management of pedestrians and vehicles shall comply with the Work Health and Safety Act. Materials and rubbish must not be left on the footpath, roadway or in any way that inconveniences public use of the area. All pumping lines crossing over Council footpaths must be ramped to allow safe pedestrian and wheelchair thoroughfare at all times.

5.   INDEMNITY AND PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE

The event applicant shall indemnify Northern Beaches Council against all claims for damage or injury that may result from the activity or occupation of part of the public way during the activity. The applicant must provide documentary evidence of public risk insurance cover of at least $10,000,000 indemnifying Council.

6.   TRAFFIC CONTROL PLAN AND/OR PEDESTRIAN CONTROL PLAN

Traffic Control Plan(s) must be submitted with the application when required and must be prepared and signed off by a suitably qualified and certified person and prepared to the current Australian standards. Pedestrian and vehicle access to private properties shall be maintained wherever possible. Where property access is affected, a minimum of 48 hours written notice must be given to residents and a copy of the notification letter provided to Council. Responsibility for pedestrian and other road users’ safety rests with the applicant from the commencement of work until completion or, if permanent restoration of the roadway or footpath by Council is required, until that work is completed. All traffic control plans shall be available on-site at all times.

7.   PERMIT TRANSFER

Stand Plant permits may be transferred to another day but only when the applicant has contacted Council and an amended permit issued in advance of the work commencing. If the permit is to be transferred, the applicant MUST contact Council before 9:00am on the day of the approved permit. Permits cannot be transferred retrospectively.

8.   PERMIT PRODUCED ON DEMAND

This permit must be carried by the operator of the plant and be produced if required by an authorised Council officer.

9.   CONSTRUCTION CERTIFICATE

An approved Construction Certificate number is required (with a few exceptions) to ensure that no illegal building works are carried out on the premises.

10.  PLANT OPERATION

Any plant dropping oils, hydraulic fluids, concrete slurry or pollutants will be immediately closed down. Any plant operator found allowing oils, hydraulic fluids, concrete or concrete slurry or pollutants to flow into Council’s gutters or stormwater drainage lines will be fined not less than $750 per individual or $1500 per corporation as per the Protection of Environmental Operations Act 1999.

Where any part of a crane intrudes into the traffic lanes of the roadway (i.e. further than 2.5m from the kerb), traffic control measures shall be implemented in accordance with the requirements of Australian Standard 1742.

Compliance with the Traffic Control Devices for Works on Roads and associated handbooks or RMS Traffic Control at Worksites Manual is required. Failure to comply with the requirements will result in the immediate closure of the works in progress.

Plastic dams or equivalent must be placed under all operating concrete pump vehicles for the full length of the pump – e.g. ‘fordecon plastic attached to 6 x 4 timber frame’.

11.  CANCELLATION

This permit is subject to cancellation at any time if any of the conditions are not complied with.

12.  ADVICE

Failure to comply with the terms of this approval constitutes a breach of the Roads Act 1993, and may result in action being taken by Council to remedy the breach. This action may include the issue of a Penalty Infringement Notice or institution of legal action.

13.  ROAD OCCUPANCY LICENCE

When the plant stands within 100m of traffic lights and/or stands on any State or Regional Road, the Applicant(s) must obtain a Road Occupancy Licence (ROL) and approval from the RMS for the works, which is subject to any conditions specified by the RMS that may impact their road network including approved hours of work.

14.  OUT-OF-HOURS PERMIT

The permit hours are 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday and 8:00am to 1:00pm on Saturday. To operate outside of these hours, you will need to apply for an additional permit (Out-of-Hours Permit). This permit requires approval from Council’s Environmental Compliance staff.

15.  COUNCIL MAY ASK FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

It is not uncommon for Council to ask for the following:

Notification Letter – The affected residents must be notified of the changes in traffic conditions in advance of the works. The notification letter must also provide a contact phone number of the site officer for residents’ enquiries. The various emergency services and Sydney Buses must be notified of the changes in traffic conditions in advance of the works.

A sample of this letter must be forwarded to Council before the permit may be issued.

A Letter of Approval – A copy of the approval from Police, Sydney Buses, Forest Coachlines and/or the various emergency services must be submitted to Council prior to the event date. This may be required (subject to location) if their services will be impacted.

A sample of this letter must be forwarded to Council before the permit may be issued.

16.  ROAD OCCUPANCY LICENCE
