Building permit information

A Building permit must be obtained before work commences on any project. Maroondah City Council’s current priorities and focus are on its statutory functions and obligations and our Building Services area are no longer issuing building permits. Council recommends that you obtain your building permit from a Private Building Surveyor (PBS).
