Building step 3 building permit application

Find out what you need to know about lodging a building permit or to get an extension or an amendment to an existing permit.



You can search for different building permit applications via our online building register.
You can lodge your building application and pay your application fee online, in person, or by post. You can also engage a private building surveyor.

If you need to change your building plans, or work taking longer than expected, you must apply for an extension or variation to your permit.

Private building surveyors are required to lodge certain documents with council once they are appointed to a project.
