Planning Permits & Services

A planning permit is a legal document that gives permission for a particular piece of land to be used or developed in a certain way. All plans for using or developing land in our region must comply with the requirements of the Mildura Planning Scheme.

To obtain a permit, you must make an application to Mildura Rural City Council. If Council agrees with the proposal, it may grant a planning permit or a notice of decision, depending upon whether there are objections to the application.

It is important not to confuse planning permits with building permits. Building permits relate to the method of construction of a building or development. If you have a planning permit you may still need to get a building permit.
