Applying for a building permit

Building permits. How to apply.

Building permits apply to most new constructions and new extensions. Some minor works do not require a building permit.
Building permits are issued by a building surveyor nominated by the owner.
Permits and conditions may apply to other structures such as balconies, swimming pools, spas, decks, water tanks and solar panels.
