Measure the area of a lot in a Neighbourhood or General Residential zone
As the owner of a single dwelling in a Neighbourhood or General Residential zone, you need a Planning Permit for a lot that is smaller than 500 square metres.
Is the lot smaller than 500 square metres?
- If yes, apply for a Planning Permit.
- If no, you do not need a Planning Permit. You will need to apply for a Building Permit.
