Applying for a Planning Permit
You may require a planning permit if you are:
- constructing or altering a building
- starting a new use on land (particularly where it may create a demand for car parks)
- displaying a sign
- subdividing land
- clearing native vegetation from land.
Even minor matters may need a planning permit and in some instances a permit may not be required. The onus is on you to find out whether a permit is required. Check with Council before proceeding with a change of use or a development on your land. Council can offer advice about local or state government policy guidelines that must be considered for particular developments.
To determine if you require a planning permit, and what type to apply for, contact Council or submit a Planning Advice form, which can be downloaded below.
Cultural Heritage Management Plan
As part of the planning permit application process you may require a Cultural Heritage Management Plan under the Aboriginal Heritage Act.
