A Building Permit Levy is payable before a building permit can be issued, however, an application may still be considered pending payment of the levy.
Works restrictions and compliance requirements may be in place if the building work relates to a property that has been, or is in the process of, being registered as heritage interest or significance.
Various approvals and / or consents under Planning and Environment Acts may also be required prior to the issue of a building permit.
A building permit period may be extended, if warranted, by application to the building surveyor before the permit lapses.
If building works are to be conducted out of hours then additional approval and a permit may be required.
