How do I apply for a building permit?
Building permits are issued by private building surveyors. We can provide information and advice as you prepare a building permit application for a private building surveyor.
Find a surveyor on the Victorian Building Authority website.
What other permits are required to build?
Regardless of whether you need a building permit, you may require a planning permit.
When a building design does not comply with residential code siting requirements, you will need to apply for a report and consent (often known as dispensation). Applications for siting dispensation are advertised to affected neighbours.
