Amend an existing planning permit

If you have a valid Planning Permit you can make an amendment to your permit by completing the online form.

Amend your Planning Permit

You can apply to:

  • Amend the conditions of a planning permit.
  • Amend the use or development for which the planning permit was issued.
  • Amend approved plans.

Restrictions when amending a planning permit 


You can only amend a valid planning permit. To find out if your planning permit is valid, check the expiry date located in the last condition on your planning permit. To amend the expiry date of your planning permit, visit Extend an existing planning permit.

Some planning permits that are issued as the result of an appeal to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) contain conditions that restrict us from making amendments. It is important that you read the planning permit conditions carefully. In these cases, the application to amend a permit needs to be made to VCAT.

There are a number of factors that are taken into account when considering an amendment to a planning permit. We suggest that you contact us to discuss your proposed changes.

Minor changes to an existing planning permit

Request for Secondary Consent

After a planning permit has been issued, you may find that minor changes are required, or you need to obtain consent for a variation to the conditions of the permit.

If this occurs, you should submit a Request for Secondary Consent. Secondary Consent requests are only for minor changes to endorsed plans. You must not proceed with any unauthorised changes until they have been properly assessed and approved by us.

Note: if your planning permit was determined at VCAT, you must contact us before completing this form.

Major changes to an existing planning permit

Amend your Planning Permit

After a planning permit has been issued, you may find that changes are required.

If your proposed changes affect the reason for the permit or the conditions of the permit, you should submit an Amend a Planning Permit form.

This process will require an additional assessment against the Casey Planning Scheme. You must not proceed with any unauthorised changes until they have been properly assessed and approved by us.

Note: a permit issued by the Minister under Division 6 cannot be amended using this form. Please contact us for further assistance.
