Restricted Access Permits

A restricted access area is a designated area within an incident area which authorised persons can enter for a period of time and for a specific purpose.

A restricted access permit may be granted for valid reasons, such as residents, business owners or utility companies inspecting vital assets and property inside a restricted access area.

Restricted access permits are issued with specific conditions, such as the address authorised to visit, how long the permit is valid for and whether the permit holder can re-enter the area. The permit can be a sticker to be placed on a vehicles’ windscreen or a paper permit. The permit must be shown at vehicle control points along with a current identity document.
