Planning Permit Application - Online Form

We love seeing the city grow and develop and are here to help you with your planning permit every step of the way. If you've done this before, jump straight in. This form takes about 15 minutes to complete and you need to reference quite a few things to complete it.

Wait, is this a subdivision application? 

If it is then you are in the wrong place my friend - subdivision applications are processed through SPEAR and can only be lodged by a registered Land Surveyor. So jump on the SPEAR website to do this.

Are you looking for the VicSmart application?

Go to our Vicsmart Application Online form to lodge or gain information on the requirements.

To get through this quickly you will need

  • A credit card to make payment
  • Copy of Title and Plan of Subdivision (produced within the last 3 months);
  • Copy of any Covenants or Section 173 Agreements registered on Title if any (under ‘Encumbrances');

    • existing conditions plan;
    • demolition plan; if any;
    • proposed site, floor and elevation plans;
    • feature survey plan;
    • materials and colour schedule; and
    • if it’s a ‘ResCode’ application, Neighbourhood and Site Description and Design Response Plan.
