Getting started with a planning application
How do I get started?
When you have found out what zones and overlays apply to your land and need advice, you can arrange a pre-application meeting to discuss your proposal with a planning officer. It is not a planning officer's role to design the application or predict a decision, but they can give advice and guidance on the process.
You can make an appointment by phoning the community focus team on (02) 6022 9300 or you can book online.
You need to bring to this appointment the property address, a copy of title if you have one, information about what you are proposing to do. This may include sketches or draft plans.
Our planners can tell you if you need a planning permit, advise what you need to include in your application, and make sure that what you want to do is not prohibited.
You may choose to seek professional advice, or prepare a planning permit application yourself using our planning application checklists as a guide. To ensure that your application can be processed quickly and efficiently, it is essential that all the relevant information is included.
