Planning & Building
A planning permit is an approval giving permission for a land use or development and is required if the proposed works or proposed use relates to land that is covered by a planning overlay or the proposed use of the land. The planning permit often involves referral to other authorities for comment or potential conditions for the permit.
A planning permit may also be required for advertising signage on your shopfront.
If in doubt, always speak to Council's Planning Department on 5593 7100. A staff member will be able to confirm if you require a planning permit or not.
