Works Zones

Provision for parking next to a works site

Works Zones are considered as part of development applications to facilitate material deliveries and other construction processes. Requests for works zones are assessed on an individual basis to balance the needs of the development being undertaken and other community members who use the road.

Works Zones facilitate construction projects by providing an area for construction vehicles to stand, minimising traffic disruption.

Applications for a Works Zone on a public road controlled by the Randwick City Council will be determined by the Council. However, please note that most of the major roads in the Randwick Council area are managed by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). If you are considering working on an RMS  road, or close to any traffic signals, you will also need to complete the application for a Road Occupancy Licence (ROL) through the RMS Transport Management Centre.

Applications for a Works Zone on a public road controlled by Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) will be referred by Council to RMS for approval and will require a RMS Road Occupancy Licence (ROL) for the full dates required for the Works Zone

The entire approval process including signage installation for a Works Zone can take up to 8 weeks.

Fees and charges

A non-refundable Application Fee is due upon submission of this form. This Application Fee will not be refunded if the application is withdrawn by the customer or if the Works Zone is refused by Council. Assessment of the Works Zone application will not commence until the Application Fee has been paid.

Council uses a tiered approach to determine the applicable pricing of Works Zones, based upon the zoning of the subject property (the property that will be subject to the construction works) as per the Randwick Local Environmental Plan:

  • Low density residential zoning: Subject properties zoned R1 or R2 in the Randwick LEP.
  • Other Zoning: Subject properties in all other zones (including Special Activities encompassing education and health precincts) as outlined in the Randwick LEP.

More information on zoning can be found on the Randwick LEP page; alternatively you can use our interactive map to discover the zoning of your property.

In addition to the tiered pricing based upon property zoning, Council takes into account whether the parking being removed from community use is parallel parking (the vehicle parallel to the kerb) or angle parking (front or rear of the vehicle to the kerb). The ‘per linear metre, per week’ fee for angle parking is equivalent to double the fee for parallel parking.
