Planning, Building & Development in Devonport

If you are building or changing the way you use your land you may need a planning permit and/or a building approval.

Planning permits relate to the use and development of land in accordance with the planning scheme [1].  A planning permit allows land to be subdivided, developed or used for a particular purpose, such as the use and construction of a house and any associated works; tree removal or to operate a business or other commercial activity.

Building permits relate to structures and are required to ensure a construction complies with the Building Regulations 2016 [2]. [2]

When a planning permit is required, it will need to be approved prior to a building permit being issued. A building permit must be consistent with requirements of the planning permit.

We provide assistance and advice about construction and land use in Devonport. Prior to commencing any works talk to a planner to see if a planning permit is required, and then find a building team to discuss obtaining a building permit.
