An Asset Protection Permit is needed when a Building Permit has been issued or building or demolition works are proposed. For more information about when a permit is required and the full process, see Asset protection

You can apply for an Asset Protection Permit online or by mail. We encourage the builder to apply for the permit as the permit holder is considered to be responsible for the site.

An application fee and a bond will also need to be paid. See fees
