Lodge your application


I want to change my application

If you want to change your planning permit application before it has been decided, you must submit an amendment to your application.

Before proceeding, make sure you have the following information:

  • A cover letter listing and explaining all the proposed changes
  • A digital copy of your amended plans and any amended supporting documents highlighting changes on the plans

Depending on the progress of your application, you may be required to pay a fee in accordance with the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

  • If your application hasn’t been advertised, there is no fee payable.
  • If your application has already been advertised, the fee is calculated at 40 percent of the original application fee and, where the class of application is changing to a higher application fee, the difference between the fee for the original class of application and the fee for the new class of application.

A full list of fees can be found in our fee schedule.

I want to submit more information or ask for more time

If we need more information about your planning permit application, you’ve probably received a request for further information pursuant to Section 54 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

You can follow the link in your further information letter to respond to a request for further information.

A request for further information will not be asked for every application. To best avoid a request for further information, use our checklists or request pre-application advice before you apply.
