Golf buggy permit

You will need a permit if you live within the Hope Island Resort, Cova Estate, or Sanctuary Cove Resort and wish to operate your golf buggy within the Santa Barbara Road Reserve or Cova Boulevard Road Reserve.

If approved, your buggy will be limited to the crossing of Council roads at a designated crossing, and the approved vehicle must hold and maintain current vehicle registration with the State Government.

If your Body Corporate holds a current Community golf buggy permit, you may request the body corporate include your buggy on their golf buggy register. You will then be required to comply with the terms and conditions of this community permit. In this instance, you will not require an individual permit.

Permits are valid until 31 August each year and may be renewed annually.

For more information, contact our City Standards team on 07 5667 5987.
