Amending a planning permit

If you need to change your permit or the endorsed plans after they have been issued, you will need to lodge an 'Application to amend a planning permit'.

Although you may not need a new permit, a request for amendment follows the same process, including possible advertising and referral to statutory bodies.

As with a new permit application, you should discuss the amendment with the council planner before submitting the request.

Note: New fees apply from 13 October 2016.
