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.

Do I need a building permit?

As with planning permission, there are some projects that will probably not need a building permit. Please contact the Building Advisor for more information. The Building Permit application form can be found on the application form page.

Please note that even if a Building Permit is required, this does not necessarily mean that Planning Permission is not required.
