Council has a policy to provide a paved footpath on one side of each road in our City. Exceptions to this policy occur for major roads, bus routes, and other roads where high pedestrian use or special circumstances occur on both sides of the road. Roads without footpaths are priority listed for construction of a footpath as funds become available. Footpaths are usually 1.5 metres wide and, where practical, are placed immediately abutting the kerb. Domestic irrigation and drainage will be altered if necessary during construction. There is no charge for footpath construction past a property when the construction is part of Council's authorised construction program. Please report any damaged footpaths to Council on 8366 9222.

The electrical contractor or owner of the property has to submit Permit to Undertake Works that Impact on Council - Section 221. The need for this form to be completed results from Council's obligations to other service authorities and the general public for safety in the community. The Permit must be completed prior to any works commencing.
The construction and maintenance of driveways across footpaths is the responsibility of the property owner benefiting from the use of the driveway. Council can provide advice about construction and levels for construction of driveways and front fences free of charge. All owners must complete an Permit to Undertake Works that Impact on Council - Section 221 for approval prior to works commencing. Any further queries please contact Infrastructure Services on 8366 9219.
Campbelltown Council constructs and maintains roads throughout our city.To preserve the life of roads they are resealed on a regular basis. Most low traffic roads are resealed using a chip seal which has loose stones on the road surface for about a month after the resealing process. This does give rise to some complaints but is a very cost effective method of road maintenance. It also promotes reduced traffic speed due to the increased tyre noise within vehicles using the surface. Please report any damage to roads or kerbing to Council on 8366 9222.
Council has adopted a Traffic Management Strategy which sets target standards for all roads in the city. Where these standards are exceeded the strategy provides for the implementation, in conjunction with the community, of traffic management measures to achieve targets.
