Demolition permit applications
A demolition permit is required for demolition, dismantling or removal of a building or incidental structure.
When only demolishing a portion of a building, a demolition permit is generally still required. To confirm if a demolition permit is required, please contact the City in writing for the attention of Building Services, outlining what is proposed to be removed.
When completing new building and demolition works, you may be able to include the demolition works as part of the building permit application, subject to confirmation by the City. Please contact the City in writing for the attention of Building Services, outlining what is proposed to be removed and the City will advise the type of application required.
Please refer to the Demolition Permit Checklist for information required to be submitted with your demolition permit application.
Fees are in accordance with the Building Services: fees and charges.
