Planning permits - when you need one?

A planning permit is permission to develop or use land for a particular purpose.

It is an offence to carry out any use, or to develop land, if that use or development requires a planning permit and a planning permit has not been obtained.

Some common reasons a planning permit is required include:

  • Starting a business;
  • Constructing, altering or extending a building;
  • Subdivisions;
  • Clearing native vegetation;
  • Changing the use of a property; or
  • Applying for a liquor licence.

A planning permit only applies to the land for which it has been granted and is usually subject to conditions.

Please view the frequently asked questions or view the Planning: A Short Guide.

PLEASE NOTE: You may need to obtain other approvals in addition to planning permit approvals – such as a building approval. See the building section for more information.

It is an offence to carry out any use, or to develop land, if that use or development requires a planning permit under the Wodonga Planning Scheme and a planning permit has not been obtained from us.

Remember, a planning permit is not a building permit.

It is also your responsibility to apply for permits and to comply with the conditions of a permit and the Wodonga Planning Scheme.
