Building

Welcome to the Building section of the Environmental Planning Department website.  This section of the Department is managed by the Building Adviser and is concerned with the actual building aspect of projects i.e. structural integrity.  Plans that are submitted for construction projects are reviewed and if satisfactory, approved for a building permit.  Without a building permit, no construction works can take place.
