Report possible illegal building works

A building permit is required for most, but not all, building works. For more information go to the Do I need a building permit? web page.   

We do not issue building permits, but we keep records of them and can advise you whether a building permit has been issued.

If you believe building works are taking place without a building permit when it is required (for example, that a pool does not have the required pool fence), please report the issue to us. We will let you know if a building permit has been issued, or if one is not required for the works. 

If a building permit is required but has not been issued, we can arrange to investigate the matter and let you know of the outcome.


Note that in order for us to process your report and investigate the issue, you will be required to meet with a Council staff member some time between 9.30am and 4pm on a weekday.
