Development applications

Before lodging a development application, applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposal with our Planning Services. We will advise whether the desired land use or development complies with the development standards and requirements of Town Planning Scheme No.2. Pre-lodgement meetings are encouraged and are free.

Please note: Single house (including patio additions) or two grouped dwelling applications on residential zoned land do not require development approval. In this regard, please make separate enquiries with us on 9528 0333 to check if an R-Codes approval is required in addition to a building permit. If you lodge an application that is not required we will cancel it and refund the application fee. To avoid delays, please follow this advice.
