Works Notifications

For all works within 20 metres of impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) system, any excavation / trenching works, or any high risk works occurring in a port of Melbourne common user area a ‘Works Notification’ is required to be submitted. These process requirements are detailed here.

A works notification requires submission two weeks prior to the conduct of the works. Each works notification is only valid for 30 days before a new notification is required. Reoccurring notifications are only required 3 days before the commencement of the next round of works. The Works Notification Form can be found here.

Each form is to be submitted to where a signed acknowledgment of the form will be returned after it has been reviewed by PoM. Information that is requested to support the works notification form submission includes:

  • For excavation activities: a geotechnical plan (if one has been developed), Dial before you Dig plans, and any other existing services plans or As Builts.
  • For any dive works near works near ICCP: a dive plan that includes the actual days and location of diving.
  • For all other high risk works occurring in common user areas and wharfs / berths: relevant SWMS for the works being performed. If there is an impact to broader port operations other relevant document may include a traffic and or emergency management plan.
