Planning compliance

Find out about planning compliance in Darebin.


Do you think someone is acting without a permit, or perhaps not complying with an approved permit? You have the right to report breaches to us.
If we find a planning breach and think you're unlikely to voluntarily fix things in a satisfactory time, we'll start our enforcement process.
Our planning officers can conduct inspections to assess planning permits. We may also visit sites to investigate suspected planning breaches.
Have you received a planning infringement notice from Darebin? You have the choice of either paying the fine or appealing our decision.
