The CIty's Statutory Planning Department is responsible for assessing and enforcing planning permit applications in accordance with the Greater Bendigo Planning Scheme.
The department also coordinates the issue of subdivision permits and the release of plans of subdivision and works closely with our Strategy Unit on the formation of policies and planning scheme amendments in accordance with the future vision of the Council.
If you have any queries about the planning process, or you require advice on a simple proposal, planning advice can often be given over the phone, by email, or a Planning Officer is available at the Planning customer service counter.
Before submitting your planning application for a specific proposal, it may be necessary to have a pre-application meeting with a planning officer to discuss the proposal and identify any key areas of concern early on in the process. This may help to process your application quicker. Please see details on when pre-application meetings are recommended and what you need to do.
