Road discontinuances

We have the power to discontinue unused roads/rights of way and provide the opportunity for adjoining property owners to purchase the land.

An extensive consultation process applies before we can decide to discontinue a road and sell the land.

This is explained in detail in our Discontinuance and Sale of Roads and Reserves brochure (pdf, 2MB).  

We encourage you to do some consultation with local property owners and provide evidence of support for any road discontinuance proposal before submitting an application to us.

Our Road Discontinuance and Sale of Land Information Kit (doc, 65KB) can help you with your application.
