Lodging an Application
To help you determine whether you need planning approval, building approval or both, please call our Development Team to discuss your project.
A pre-lodgement meeting is a free meeting between prospective applicants and Council's Development team to discuss a development proposal prior to the formal lodgement of an application with Council. It provides a prospective applicant the opportunity to discuss and receive feedback from Council on any constraints or concerns about their development proposal.
Giving Council an assessment-ready application, with all required information will not 'guarantee' approval - however, it will promote an efficient process, saving time and money, for both you and Council.
To arrange a pre-lodgement meeting, or if you require assistance in lodging your application, please contact Council's Development Team on (07) 4620 8888
Building approval can be obtained either from Council or Private Certification.
When submitting a building application the application must consist of the following:
- DA Form 2 - Building work details
- Plans (including site plan, floor plan and elevations)
- Application Fee (Fees and Charges Schedule)
- QBCC Insurance (if applicable)
- Q Levy (if applicable)
Please use the checklists below to assist with your application:
