Use this tool to get an understanding of which permits you may need.
The Business Concierge Service will give you additional feedback on which permits you may need, and in some cases some feedback to help you with general business readiness, and advise you of the next steps based on your circumstances.
If the concierge provides feedback that your application is ‘simple’, it means that you will only need to deal with one Council department.You will be directed towards that department and you can deal directly with the officers that will process your application from start to finish.
A complicated application means that you will need permits from two or more Council departments.The business concierge will help you throughout the application process to ensure coordinated communication between the Council departments and help ensure you have peace of mind that you application is being processed.
The concierge will likely recommend a pre-application meeting to give you a chance to explain your project to all the relevant Council officers and get an understanding of what will be needed as part of your applications. You’ll then be provided a tailored ‘Permit Pathway Plan’ to advise you on the steps you should follow to obtain all your permits in a timely manner.
