Building & Demolition

Extension to Building Permits

During the COVID-19 pandemic, building work has been disrupted or delayed across the state, with some owners unable to complete work before their building permit expires. A Notice under the COVID-19 Disease (Emergency Provisions) Act 2020 has been issued to extend existing permits.

For more information visit our Extension to Building Permits page.
