Making Changes to Permits, Plans and Timeframes

Under Section 72 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, any requests for amendments to a permit must be made in writing to the responsible authority, together with the relevant fee. Any changes that affect the reason for the permit (preamble) or permit conditions must be lodged under Section 72.

You can also make a request to amend the endorsed plans via the Secondary Consent mechanism, if your permit contains this condition.

Refer to Fees Guides to calculate the fee applicable.

Plans to comply with permit conditions, such as Condition 1 and others, are often required to be lodged and approved by Council before a Building Permit can be issued and works commenced.

Changes to Plans to comply from 13.10.2016 - A fee is now applicable for plans to comply if the first submission to Council was unsatisfactory. Subsequent lodgment's will incur a fee of $325.80 (as at 1st July 2019) per condition, as per Regulation 18 of the Planning & Environment (Fees) Regulations 2016.
