Plan your development
If you are constructing something on your property – from fences, carports, sheds to a new residential, industrial or commercial building – you need to know whether you are required to obtain an approval and what development controls apply.

- Property Enquiry is the Council’s tool for viewing information on conditions that apply to land and property, including permitted development and maps.
- Development Planning will identify what documentation you will need to lodge your Development Application
