Development approval (also known as planning approval) and building permits are two separate processes. In most cases both planning approval and a building permit will be required, however, there are some instances when only one is required. When both are required, you must receive planning approval first before you can apply for a building permit.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - The City is presently experiencing delays in the processing of applications and customer queries. The Duty Planner is available between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday. We thank you for your patience on this matter.
