In This Section
This list is does not cover all projects that require a building permit. You should contact the Shire's Building Department if you are planning any building projects to check whether the works will require a permit.
Building permits and Planning permits are different and require separate approvals. Some projects will require both Planning and Building whilst others may only require a Building Permit. You should find out if a Planning permit is required prior to applying for your Building Permit. A Planning Permit must be issued before a Building Permit can be obtained. Find out whether you need a Planning Permit here.
If you live in an area that is not connected to mains sewerage then you must obtain a Septic Tank permit if you are planning to build anything that will have any toilet, kitchen or bathroom fixtures. A Septic Tank permit can be issued after a Planning Permit but before a Building Permit issued. Find out more information about obtaining a Septic tank permit here.
