Projects that do not require a planning permit
Under the Heritage Overlay, no planning permit is required for repairs and routine maintenance, which do not change the appearance of the heritage place. The repairs must be undertaken to the same details, specifications, and materials as existing. Projects could include re-roofing, masonry repairs, new guttering, re-painting, pointing, repair to window frames, verandah floors and facades.
Projects that require a planning permit
