Private land owners and/or occupiers are permitted to construct a dividing fence that does not fit the above requirements, however in that situation Council will only pay half of what the cost would have been if it did meet the standards above (additional costs would be at the owner/occupiers expense).
Payments will be made upon receipt of a Tax Invoice following the completion of works. Payments can be made directly to the contractor who completed the works or to the private land owners/occupiers if they have already paid the Tax Invoice in full. Payment will be made within 30 days of receipt of a Tax Invoice.
If you wish to make a request for Council contribution to adjoining fence costs please complete the below form and send it with two written quotations to Customer Service at Council’s Office at 111 Brown Street, Hamilton, email@example.com or post to:
