Our building and planning teams provide assistance and advice about construction and land use in the Yarra Ranges.

If you are building or changing the way you use your land you may need a building permit and/or a planning permit.

Building permits relate to structures and are required to ensure a construction complies with regulations. Separate to a planning permit, you may need a building permit for a structure, fence or retaining wall. Private registered building surveyors can issue building permits.
