e-Planning is the use of technology in the delivery of planning and development services, such as the online lodgement and tracking of applications, viewing planning information on a web based interactive map and providing new ways for stakeholders to engage with the planning process.

Exempt Development

What is exempt development? Low impact development, such as fences, barbeques, driveways and sheds, are often classified as exempt development and do not require any further planning or building approvals.

Use the interactive guides to explore what alterations you can make without the need for these consents, as well as understanding any restrictions that may apply.
