Before applying for a building permit, you need to choose a Building Surveyor. You may choose either a Council Building Surveyor or a Private Building Surveyor.
You, your Architect or Builder can apply for the permit. You need to authorise the Architect or Builder in writing to make the application on your behalf. Do not sign a blank Building Permit Application form authorising others to obtain permits for you.
Always check that a Building Permit has been issued before any work commences.
Council’s Building Surveyor can assist you with your Building Permit application. We also provide a limited Building Permit service within the local adjoining Shire Council areas.
