About this form

This form is to be completed when applying for the following approvals:

b) Stormwater
The stormwater easement is an area set aside within the block, free of buildings and other obstructions, to protect underground stormwater pipes to allow for maintenance activities. Existence of an easement must be checked by TCCS and if an easement exists then the construction in the vicinity of the easement must be cleared by TCCS.

c) Waste Management Plan
