Development permits must be obtained for new buildings or structures, re-erection, alterations and/or addition to any building or removal/demolition and change of classification in the Council Region. Council Officers are happy to discuss proposals with applicants. A list of requirements and the various forms can be mailed or collected from one of our offices.

Before lodgement of an application, consultation with Council's Building Surveyor is advisable to ensure land use etc is suitable for the requested development application.
