How to use this guide

To help you work out which permits you need, begin at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time. You may need to refer to your installation design and take measurements.

Before you begin

Before finalising your design:

  • 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 51.01 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.
