To access Council land with a commercial vehicle, you may need a permit. Moreton Bay Regional Council grants permits when vehicle access is required for approved purposes and it will not cause damage to parks or public land. You may need a permit for:
- access to jetties (for delivering goods to a boat or setting up fireworks etc)
- beach access (commercial fishermen)
- helicopter landings.
Moreton Bay Regional Council regulates these activities to ensure they are carried out safely while taking other park users and residents into consideration.
You will need to submit an application at least eight weeks before you need commercial vehicle access. This allows time to review your submission, request any further information, conduct a final assessment and make a decision.
Once all supporting documents have been provided, your application will be reviewed and assessed for approval under Local Law No 1 (Administration) 2011. Schedule 18.
Initial assessment of your application may take up to five business days. We may go out to consultation with key stakeholders. It may take up to 30 business days from initial assessment to decision once all supporting documents have been provided.
Commercial fisher access is only permitted at Red Beach and Skirmish Point, Bribie Island, and Suttons Beach, Redcliffe. Permits for the general public to drive on the beach are issued by Queensland Parks and Wildlife.
If you require temporary access to your property via a park or other Council land, contact Council.
