What is the difference between a planning permit and a building permit?
Building permits are issued by a registered building surveyor and generally relate only to the construction aspects of a particular building or development. However, there are times when a planning permit may also be required.
Planning permits are legal documents giving permission for a land use or development to occur on a specified parcel of land.
If a planning permit is required, it must be obtained before a building permit can be issued, however, both applications can be made at the same time.
A planning permit does not remove the need to obtain a building permit.
