Coronavirus update 13 March 2020

COVID-19 restrictions: what's closed and what's open.

Some of our services may be closed or have different hours for the public holiday on Friday 23 October.

A Secondary Consent amendment may be the most appropriate way for Council to assess minor changes to endorsed plans.

Find out more about Secondary Consent amendments.

Follow these steps to apply for a Secondary Consent amendment.

Step 1: Prepare the supporting documentation

To apply for a Secondary Consent amendment, the following information is required:

  • a cover letter detailing the proposed changes
    There is no application form required for a Secondary Consent amendment.
  • a written summary justifying why the amendments are being requested
  • an electronic copy of the revised plans.

Make sure that revised plans include all parts of the original design that have not changed.

For example, if the original plans included two dwellings, and one will be modified, both dwellings must appear on the revised plans.

Step 2: Submit the application and supporting documents

 Submit the application electronically using either of the following methods:

Alternatively, we can accept applications submitted by post to Council Offices.

Once lodged, the Statutory Planning Department will return to you via email an invoice and link to Council’s online payment portal for you to complete your application payment.

Alternatively, we accept credit card payment forms and cheques sent via post to Council Offices.

The City of Boroondara does not accept the credit card payment form via email.

For Planning Permit fees as of 1 July 2018, see Victoria State Government planning and subdivision fees.

Step 3: Respond to requests for further information

Following lodgement of your amendment application, it will be assessed by Council.
