As the owner or occupier of the land, you may apply for an extension of time to the commencement or completion date, as outlined in your existing planning permit:

  • before or within 6 months after the permit expiry commencement date, where the use or development allowed by the permit has not yet started,
  • within 12 months after the permit expiry completion date, where the development allowed by the permit has lawfully started before the permit expires.

We cannot extend a permit if the request is made outside the above timeframes, and you will not be able to apply to VCAT for a review of the matter.

If you are not the owner/occupier of the land, you must have written consent to act on their behalf. 

Documentation you must provide

As well as your application form, you will also be required to provide the following information:

  • Proposed time frames for commencement/completion.
  • Reasons as to why you require the extension.
  • Proof that the development has lawfully commenced before the expiry date.

What happens next

A planning officer will assess your application and contact you.
