Nobody wants to get things this wrong..

Yes, it can happen if you fail to follow the.......


Step 1: Determine if You Need a Permit

Before diving into the process, figure out if your project requires a planning permit. Check your local council's website or contact the planning department for information on this.

Step 2: Research Council Guidelines

Check the specific guidelines and rules set by your local council for your type of development. This information is usually available on their website or can be obtained by contacting the planning department.

Step 3: Prepare Your Application

Gather all the necessary documents for your application. This may include site plans, floor plans, elevations, and any other details required by the council. Make sure your application addresses all the relevant criteria outlined by the local authorities.

Step 4: Consult with Council Officers

Consider discussing your plans with council officers before submitting your application. They can provide valuable insights and advice to ensure your application meets the requirements.

Step 5: Lodge Your Application

Submit your application to the local council. This can typically be done online or by visiting the council offices. Ensure you include all the required documents and pay the application fee.

Step 6: Application Assessment

The council will review your application to ensure it complies with local planning policies and regulations. This may involve a site inspection and consultation with relevant authorities.

Step 7: Public Notification (if required)

For certain applications, the council may require public notification, where neighboring properties are informed of your plans. This allows the community to provide feedback or objections.

Step 8: Decision

After the assessment and any necessary public notification, the council will make a decision on your application. This may involve approval, approval with conditions, or rejection.

Step 9: Respond to Conditions (if applicable)

If your application is approved with conditions, you'll need to address these before starting your project. This may involve making changes to your plans or meeting specific requirements.

Step 10: Commence Your Project

Once you have the planning permit, you can proceed with your project. Keep in mind that a planning permit doesn't cover other approvals like building permits, so check if additional permits are required.
