‘Demolition’ is the removal of any part of a building or works.
How to use this guide
To help you work out which permits and approvals you need for demolition, begin at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time.
Before you begin
Before finalising your plans:
- Check whether your project involves removing, pruning or carrying out works near a protected tree. You may need a permit for the tree works.
- Check for easements on your property. When an easement is obstructed, it can prevent important maintenance work and block the flow of stormwater. If your plans impact an easement, it may be necessary to modify your plans.
- See if the property is listed under Schedule to Clause 52.03 Specific Sites and Exclusions. If the property is listed, contact Statutory Planning on 9278 4888 to find out about special restrictions and exemptions that apply.
If you need help with Planning Permits, contact our Statutory Planning team on 9278 4888 or email Statutory Planning.
If you need help with Building Permits, contact our Building Services team on 9278 4999 or email Building Services.
