Building permit information
You must obtain a Building permits before the work commences on any project. Maroondah City Council’s current priorities and focus are on its statutory functions and obligations and Maroondah City Council Building Servces are no longer issuing building permits. Council recommends that you obtain your building permit from a Private Building Surveyor (PBS).
Permit application requirements
Council's Building Surveyors/Inspectors can advise on buidling regulations (eg. alterations, pools, sheds and fences etc). The following checklist is a guide to what may be required for a Building Permit Application.
Note: This checklist is a guide only and we recommend you discuss the process with a Private Building Surveyor as the requirements may vary.
Please contact Building Services on 9298 4327 for any further queries on the permit application process.
A Planning Permit may also be required.
Before you apply for a Building Permit, you should obtain confirmation from Council's Planning Services to see if works require a Planning Permit.
