We are taking longer than usual to process building applications, due to resourcing pressures. The current processing time is 10 to 20 business days for certified applications, and 25 to 35 business days for uncertified applications.
If we take longer to process your application than the statutory timeframes listed in the table below, the applicable application fees as prescribed under the Building Act 2011 will be refunded.
We apologise for any inconvenience.

Where the estimated value of work exceeds $20,000 for building or demolition applications, a BCITF form must been completed and submitted with the application*. Forms are available from the front counter at the City of Belmont Civic Centre, 215 Wright Street, Cloverdale, or alternatively contact CTF directly.
*Please Note - If you intend to lodge a building or demolition permit application through the City’s online lodgement system, payment must be made directly to CTF prior to lodging your application to the City, and a copy of the CTF payment receipt must be provided with your online lodgement application.
