A planning permit will allow you to subdivide your land, develop it or use it for a particular purpose. This includes activities like renovating or building a house, installing a driveway or operating a business from home.
Planning permits are issued by Council in the first instance, or by VCAT or the Minister for Planning.
Decisions are guided by the Maribyrnong Planning Scheme and other controls.
All applications are submitted online.
