Apply for a Planning Permit, if needed
If you have determined that you need a Planning Permit for your project:
- Obtain a clear copy of your Certificate of Title including the lot plan. You can get this from the Landata website-external site. The Certificate of Title must be no more than 28 days old.
- Write a cover letter explaining your proposal.
- Obtain a design response or explanation of the proposed use of the aerial or antenna. A design response is a plan that depicts how the proposed design responds to its context. It supports the proposal by showing how the design works within the site's constraints.
- Prepare a plan drawn to scale (1:100 or 1:200) with full dimensions. The plan must show the site, floor layout and elevations.
- Complete the Planning Permit application form and lodge the form, fee and supporting documents with Council. To download the form and submit the application, see our Apply for a Planning Permit page.
- Now, check whether you need a Building Permit as part of Step 8.
