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.
Before erecting, altering, extending, changing the use or demolishing a building we recommend that you speak to our Development Services staff. The building project you are considering may require planning, building, demolition or plumbing approvals.
Our Development Services team can assist you regarding the required approvals for your building project. We have provided some information sheets and application forms below. For more information, fact sheets and resources regarding the Building Regulatory Framework, visit the Consumer, Building and Occupational Services website.
