Use the Build a new dwelling guide to determine which permits you need to construct a house that is the only dwelling on a lot (a single dwelling).

You need a Building Permit to construct a dwelling. You may also need a Planning Permit, as well as various other permits and approvals.

  • Begin at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time. 
  • You may be asked to look at which zone and overlays affect the works.
  • When prompted, exit the guide and apply for the permits relevant to your project.
