Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Planning Approval and Building Permit?
Planning approvals and building permits are different and are controlled by different Council departments.
This means that you may need to apply for planning approval, or a building permit, or both depending on your proposed development or land use.
If your development does require planning approval, you must obtain the planning approval before lodging a building permit application with the City. A phone call to your local council is recommended.
