If you are building or changing the way you use your land you may need a planning permit and/or a building permit.
Planning permits relate to the use of land in accordance with the planning scheme. A planning permit allows land to be subdivided, developed or used for a particular purpose, such as the use and construction of a house and any associated works; tree removal or to operate a business or other commercial activity.
Building permits relate to structures and are required to ensure a construction complies with the Building Regulations 2006. A building permit may be required for a structure, fence or retaining wall. Building permits are issued by a private registered building surveyor.
When a planning permit is required, it will need to be approved prior to a building permit being issued. A building permit must be consistent with requirements of the planning permit.
Prior to commencing any works talk to a planner to see if a planning permit is required, and then find a building team to discuss obtaining a building permit. For more informations please visit:
