If you need a planning permit for your proposal, you will need to lodge a planning application. All planning applications require the following information:
- Planning permit application
A complete planning permit application form including the property address, proposal, owner’s details, cost of the development and signed declarations.
2. Certificate of Title
A current copy of the Certificate of Title (produced within the last three months) including the registered search statement, plan of subdivision and any restrictions that apply to the land e.g. covenants or Section 173 agreements. You can request a copy of your current Certificate of Title from www.landata.vic.gov.au.
One copy of the site, elevation and floor plans. Plans must be to scale (1:100 or 1:200) at A3 size and rotated to landscape orientation. All electronically submitted plans must be sent in PDF format, as individual files or plan sets.
A site plan is a bird's-eye view which shows your existing and proposed development, and the position to boundaries and neighbouring developments.
It should show all structures on the proposed site, and any other features, such as vegetation, car parks, driveways and crossovers. Information on the length of boundaries and walls, site levels, the distance between existing and proposed buildings and the property's boundaries and adjoining walls should also be provided. The plans should distinguish clearly between the existing structures and features, and those that are being proposed.
A short written summary should be provided, detailing the site coverage, floor area, number of parking spaces, the area proposed for landscaping and any other relevant details.
