Check Fill

Before accepting fill on your land, check with Council to find out if filling of land is permitted and what approvals are required. Council approval is often required to ensure that only uncontaminated fill is used on residential properties and safety control measures are put in place. Council will also check that fill is not placed in areas where it may cause harm to plants and wildlife or pollute watercourses.

Don't risk a $5,000 fine or penalties of up to $1 million.
