Apply for planning information

It can be tricky to work out if you need a planning permit. Before you begin, check out our easy to use self guides.

To request written planning information that will let you know whether your proposal needs a Planning Permit, find out how to apply below.

You can also search our planning register online to see if a planning permit has been issued for a property.

If you know you need a planning permit, apply online.

What will I need to complete an application?

To apply for written planning information you will need:

  • A statement describing your proposal that clearly explains what you want to do
  • A statement on the current use of your property
  • A copy of both the Register Search Statement (Title) and Title Plan 
  • Concept plans showing what you want to do 

If you plan to remove vegetation you should check if you need a permit. In most cases, a permit is required for vegetation removal.
