Building & Planning

Before starting a new business, relocating your existing business, constructing or extending a building you may need to apply for a planning permit. A planning permit is separate from a building permit and is a requirement of the Wyndham Planning Scheme rather than the Building Act.

Time taken to process your application is largely dependent on the nature, scale and complexity of the individual application.

Most applications involve some form of referral to other expert parties and others will require the advertising of the application to nearby landowners/occupiers. The referral and advertising processes add time to the overall assessment time.

Processing time for applications can vary from as little as three weeks to as long as six months.

Town Planning Services can be contacted by phoning 8734 5463, emailing mail@wyndham.vic.gov.au or by visiting the Town Planning Building at the Civic Centre between office hours (8am-5pm, Monday-Friday).
