You need Report and Consent for:

  • building works that extend past a street alignment (the line between the street and the property boundary), such as windows, verandahs, awnings, service cabinet doors, and architectural features 
  • a structure above or below a public facility, such as a bridge between buildings and a car park under a street.

A public facility includes roads, footpaths, streets, laneways, parks and any public space. 

These are 'non-siting matters' that require Report and Consent. This is when your building plans meet the siting requirements of the Victorian Building Regulations 2018 but your works still affect community assets, infrastructure or amenity.

How to apply
