 Planning Application Types

The City's Planning Department is responsible for ensuring that development within the City complies with its Local Planning Scheme, Local Planning Policies, Residential Design Codes and other State legislation/policies. This is necessary to ensure that land uses and property developments occur in appropriate locations, are compatible with surrounding development and will not result in negative amenity impacts and overall will remain consistent with community expectations.

In most instances, planning approval is required to be obtained in order to develop land (some types of dwellings, warehouses, additions etc.), erect signage, or to change an existing land use. Some types of development do not require planning approval. For further information on the 'permitted developments' please contact the City's Planning Department.
