Planning and development
What is the difference between planning and building permits?
The planning permit and building permit systems are very different and operate under separate legislation, although they are often related to each other.
A planning permit may be required for development, land use, advertising signs or removing trees depending on the requirements of the Yarra Planning Scheme.
A building permit will be required for most commercial, industrial and residential development including new buildings, alterations and additions to factories, warehouses, shops, dwellings, sheds and in some cases fences and retaining walls. Building permits can be obtained from our Municipal Building Surveyor or a private building surveyor.
Before construction or activity can start, a proposed development may require a planning permit, building permit or both.
