Apply for a Building Permit, if needed

  1. Read the Building Permit application checklist to determine which supporting documents you need for your circumstances. If you are unsure what you need, contact the Building Services team on 9278 4999 or email Building Services.
  2. If relevant, apply for Report and Consent. You need to apply for Report and Consent if the design does not comply with the siting requirements of the Building Regulations, for example non-compliant front setback or overlooking. You may also need Report and Consent for non-siting provisions of the Building Regulations such as building on flood prone land. Contact the Building Services Team if you are unsure whether you need Report and Consent for your project.
  3. Complete the Application for a Building Permit.
  4. Lodge the Building Permit application form, fee and supporting documents with Council. For fee information, email Building Services.

You may lodge the application for a Building Permit while other permit applications are still being processed, but may only begin construction when all required permits and approvals are granted.

See whether there are any other Permits you need for your project.
