All planning applications need the following information to be provided at the time of submitting the application:

Applications can be submitted electronically, by post, or at the Civic Centre in Kingston.
Your submission will be assessed to ensure you have all the relevant documents before being lodged by Kingborough Council’s Customer Service Team. You will then be sent an invoice for the application. Once the payment has been made, the application will be allocated to a Planning Officer for assessment.
Consultation with Council officers prior to submitting your proposed development or use will help to ensure that all factors are considered as part of the project design, and relevant issues are identified and considered in the early stages of the proposal.
