Some simple planning permit applications, such as front fences, removal of a tree and the subdivison of existing buildings, are fast tracked under a streamlined process.

Visit the DEWLP website to find out if your proposal can be lodged as a VicSmart application.


E-planning currently unavailable 

Some of Council's services will not be available from 5pm on Friday 29 May to 7am on Monday 1 June as we undertake important server works.

As part of Council’s Civic Centre Redevelopment, we’re relocating our servers to accommodate upcoming major building works.

This means that some Council services will not be available for customers online.

These include:

  • Some payments
  • Some applications for permits or certificates
  • Rates payments
  • Pool registrations
  • Animal requests
  • Council’s after hours phone service will be available for urgent requests.
  • Automatic replies to Council’s email will not be available during these works.

The Lilydale Community Link will also be closed on Saturday morning.

We’ve scheduled these server works to minimise any possible disruption to Council service, however we apologise for any inconvenience the outage will cause.
