Road stopping

The Council may sell unformed legal road when the land is not needed for utilities, roads or footpaths.

What is road stopping?

Road stopping is the process of changing the status of the land from unformed legal road to fee simple so that it can be sold. Often it is the strip of land between a property owner's front boundary and an existing road or footpath.

Road Encroachment Policy

The Council's Road Encroachment and Sale Policy covers the regulation and management of the use of legal road for private purposes.
