Frequently Asked Questions

What are footpath levels and how to apply?

Footpath levels provide the correct grade or level any new driveways or footpaths have to be constructed at.  They also provide finished surface levels at the property boundary for construction work inside the property. 


Why do we need Footpath Levels ?


Footpath levels are often a condition on development consents for new houses or developments.  They are needed to ensure building levels inside and outside of the property conform to Council’s requirements.
