Planning Permits

Planning permits explained

A planning application may have to address many different matters. Some matters that might be relevant to a planning permit application include:

  • Bushfire hazard 
  • Flood hazard
  • Climate change
  • Erosion hazard
  • The amenity of an area
  • Social impacts
  • Vegetation removal
  • Heritage
  • Infrastructure

Planning permit applicants need to supply all the information so that Council can assess the issues and reach a good, balanced decision.

 

As well as deciding if a planning permit should be issued, Council must enforce the rules about land use and development.  For example planning permits often have conditions about how a proposal must be carried out.  Council Officers check that these conditions are met and may take action if the conditions are not met.  Similarly if a permit has not been issued by Council but development happens anyway, Council will start enforcement action.

 

Remember, it is up to you to check and get the correct permits.
