To apply for a Planning Permit you must lodge an application with Council.
An application form needs to be filled in and submitted with plans of what is proposed and supporting documentation.
A checklist of mandatory documents and information is provided as part of the Planning Permit Application Form.
If your application is straightforward and, for example, involves a change of use with little structural alterations to the building, you may not need professional assistance. In many cases though, it is wise to get professional assistance with the application, especially where detailed drawings and/or site analysis is needed.
Furthermore, payment of the applicable fee will be required prior to assessment of the application commencing.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to talk to Council’s Planning Office at 137 Rooke Street, Devonport.
