Do I need approval?
Undertaking development may require a Development Application depending in the type, scale and location of the development. If development requires Development Approval, it is illegal to undertake the development without first obtaining Development Approval. If you do not obtain Development Approval when it is needed you may face prosecution or be fined.
If you are unsure whether the activity you wish to undertake is development, you can refer to Council’s guide for “activities and acts which are not development”. Alternatively, you can check with Council’s Planning & Development Department on 86403444.
