If you're considering a building or development project, whether it's an aviary or an office block, you may need building, plumbing and/or planning approval.
- Building approval is concerned with the construction, safety and water run-off of the project. You can get this approval through a private building certifier. From 1 July 2016, Council will no longer be seeking to accept building approvals.
- Planning approval is concerned with the impact on Council infrastructure, the landscape and the local environment.
- Plumbing approval is concerned if your development requires a new connection to the water and sewerage networks.
