Reimbursement of Security Bond
Upon completion of a final inspection, Council or an Authorised Officer will arrange for the security bond to be refunded, provided that there has been no damage to Council assets or that the damage identified has been reinstated to Council’s satisfaction.
Where repair works have been carried out by Council to reinstate damaged assets, those costs will be deducted from the security bond. If the bond is insufficient to cover the cost of reinstatement works, the additional sum will be invoiced to the permit holder. Please refer to Council’s Asset Protection Local Law 2016 for further reference regarding this process.
Refunds will be processed via electronic funds transfer to the banking details provided with the permit application form.
Please allow at least 28 days for the funds to be accessible. Please contact the Asset Protection team on 9705 5200 if the original banking details you supplied have changed.
