Private Building Surveyors Lodgement Online

Private Building Surveyors wanting to lodge Section 30 Building Permits can now lodge online all building permit documentation and plans.

The Building Regulations require Building Surveyors to lodge all building permits with the relevant Council within 7 days of issue. Manningham City Council now has a facility which allows you to lodge all documentation and plans online.

All documentation must be in PDF format and no PDF can exceed 200MB in size. You may also zip all the PDF files and attach a Zip file containing all the documentation and plans. You must upload the Building Permit document separately from the other documentation and plans so please ensure you have them saved separately before you begin to submit.

The system will allow you to upload all documentation and then pay the lodgement fee via Securepay.

If the cost of works is less than $5000 please choose the "Private Building Surveyor - Residential Works <$5k" so that the system knows there is no fee applicable.

Please ensure you choose the correct option in the system to ensure our records are maintained and all fees are correct.

At the conclusion of lodgement, you will be given a reference number. This can be used for future submissions of further information and finalisation of permits which can be sent via email once the permit has been lodged online.

Please note that this lodgment system is only to be used for new or Stage 1 Building Permits. We can advise that all further information, Stage 2 permits, amended documents and certificate of final/occupancy permits can be lodged via email to once the initial section 30 has been lodged.
