If you plan to do any building work, you should check with us first to find out if you need a Building Permit. A Building Permit ensures your building project is built by registered and insured builders, has the correct documentation, is inspected at different stages of work and is independently assessed as suitable or occupation upon completion.

Most building works require a building permit irrespective of their size and cost. Please contact Council to discuss your building proposal.

If a planning permit is required for the development, a building permit cannot be approved until a planning permit has been issued.

The responsibilities of the Municipal Building Surveyor include dealing with assessing applications for permits, investigation of breaches to Building Legislation, reporting authority.
