Processing of applications are required to comply with Statutory Timeframes.

Under the Building Act 2011 these timeframes are as follows:

  • Uncertified Building Permit        – 25 working days (5 weeks)

  • Certified Building Permit            – 10 working days (2 weeks)

  • Demolition Permit                      – 10 working days (2 weeks)

Before you lodge your building application, you should already have (if applicable) the following approvals in place:

  • Planning Approval
  • Apparatus for the Treatment of Sewage

One of the common hold-ups is due to insufficient documentation supplied at the lodgement of the application.

If further information is requested, this extends the statutory timeframes.

The following customer checklists will help you work through the steps, and documentation required to enable a full assessment for you building application to be undertaken.
