Obtaining a Building Permit involves a statutory process.

The process is different for each individual proposal. Factors such as the design, allotment particulars, planning issues, and Building Regulations (to name a few), all play a significant role in the assessment by the Building Surveyor. If you have built before, then the new project may vary from the last; meaning that other factors may come into play which did not apply to the previous site.



The Building Surveyor's role is to assess the application under the Building Act 1993, Building Regulations 2006, NCC BCA (Current) and Australian Standards. Note there may also be specific restrictions imposed by your property title.

The Building Surveyor will advise you on all the requirements that apply to your project, and assist you in achieving compliance so that a building permit can be issued.
