Lodge a Planning Property Enquiry

A Planning Property Enquiry is formal written advice from Council providing confirmation of planning permit requirements for buildings, works or uses of land.

This advice can assist in determining whether or not a planning permit or other consent may be required for a proposal, minimise the risks involved in starting work before a permit is issued, or fulfil third parties’ requirements for the provision of written confirmation from Council.

Planning Property Enquiries are lodged online, and can be paid in one of two ways. Simply follow the links below to begin lodging your request.

Requests must include plans and/or details of your proposal, and a recently searched copy of your property title, including any registered restrictions and agreements.

You are encouraged to discuss your proposal with your neighbours to see if any issues could be resolved before you apply.

Lodge a Pre-application advice request

Pre-application advice is provided by Council's Planning Officers on tentative or draft plans prior to the submission of a formal planning permit application. It provides the opportunity for applicants to receive guidance and direction on a proposal and for issues to be identified at an early stage.

Pre-application advice may be provided for any matter requiring planning approval. Major applications may require referral to Council's Sustainable Design Taskforce.
