Requirement for Planning Approval
Changes to planning applications as a result of new State Planning Regulations
Since the introduction of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 which came into effect on 19 October 2015 certain types of development no longer require planning approval. This can include a single house, ancillary accommodation, outbuilding, external fixtures, boundary wall or fence, pergola, verandah, garage, carport or swimming pool, certain proposals for demolition and uses that are listed as permitted ( “P”) uses in Town’s Town Planning Scheme No 2. Please refer to the information sheet relating to development for which approval may not be required.
The requirements to obtain a building permit prior to works commencing remains unchanged. Please refer to the Building Services section of the Town’s Website.
Before applying for a building permit please confirm whether planning approval is required or has been issued. If the Town determines that a planning approval is required when processing a building permit application, the Town will place the building permit application on hold until the planning approval is granted. In such cases the applicant will need to complete a full planning application with its associated fees.
Should you have any queries regarding these new regulations please contact Planning and Regulatory Services on 9384 1633 or email@example.com
