Building permits

A building permit is required for most building and demolition works including associated works such as a structure, fencing or retaining wall. The building permit process ensures buildings are structurally safe and that the works comply with state building regulations.

Building works are independently inspected by private building surveyors at key stages however, consent may also need to be obtained from the City.

To get a permit, you will need to engage a private building surveyor.

The City doesn't issue building permits.
