Other Council approvals required for development

Subsequent to receiving a Material Change of Use approval for a development from Council’s Planning Department, there may be other approvals or permits required from other departments within Council. The Required Council Approvals for Development Flowchart details Council approvals relating to various components of development that may be required prior to the commencement of the use. Please note that the flowchart functions as guide only, and further approvals may also be required including those from State departments.

It is advised, as part of the process, that Council is contacted to confirm that the use can commence and that all required approvals have been obtained. For more information, please contact Planning Services on 1300 763 903 or 07 4030 2265. You can also email your query to
