No more paper applications

From 6 March 2017, we are introducing paperless lodgement of some development and construction-related applications.

Your application will need to meet our digital requirements.

Offices to shopfronts

The form for small scale commercial developments can be downloaded below. It can be used for:

  • commercial office fit-outs
  • changes to commercial shopfronts
  • signage and advertising structures.

This form cannot be used for excavation, residential properties, licensed premises, restricted premises or changes of use where operating hours are after 10pm.

More information about what is required with your completed development application form can be found in the Application process section.
