You will require this permit if you intend to use or develop land, or change the use or development of land, which is subject to a planning scheme. A planning permit grants approval for a particular use or development, including changing the use, appearance, or size of land or structures (subdivision, signage, buildings and structures, and building work) to proceed on a specific parcel of land. Minor changes may also require a planning permit, for example, you may require a planning permit if you intend to keep bees; conduct an open air market; interfere with watercourses, bridges, ditches or tunnels; prune trees on private land; store, dismantle, repair or paint vehicles or boats; or store or deposit building or industrial materials on council land.
A planning permit may be amended if required upon application subject to the usual process for obtaining a planning permit and payment of the prescribed fee.
The process may be complex and you should seek expert advice or consult with your Local Council for further advice and/or assistance.
