Apply for a planning permit

Applying for a Planning Permit

There are two streams of planning permit applications: 

  • Those assessed under the standard planning process
  • Those assessed under the VicSmart planning provisions  

It is important that you understand which type of application you need to apply for as the application form and information that is required to be submitted with your application will be different.  Applications meeting the VicSmart criteria are generally simple applications and have a 10 day assessment timeframe.

It is recommended that you consult Council's Planning Department early in the process of preparing an application to ensure you are aware of all submission requirements.  Council cannot process an application until all relevant information has been submitted.

Please refer to the General Planning Application checklist to ensure you have all relevant documents when submitting an application. For application fees, please refer to the Planning Fee Schedule.
