Planning permits

Update on Cardinia Shire Council’s planning services

  • Please note we are currently experiencing significant delays in delivering decisions and investigating planning complaints from our community.
  • The delays are due to an increase in applications, staff shortages and the limited availability of planners across the sector in Victoria. These pressures are not just impacting Cardinia Shire Council; they're being felt right across both the public and private sectors.
  • We will continue to do everything we can to resolve this as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these challenges.
  • We encourage you to check the e-planning portal to get a status update on your application.
