A building permit is required for any proposed building work to any existing building except those exempt under Clause 2 of Schedule 4 of the Regulations. Application for a building permit is via Form BA1 for a certified application or Form BA2 for an uncertified application.
If the proposed building works are likely to adversely affect adjoining land or building beyond the boundaries of the building envelope, a Form BA20 or Form BA20a must be submitted with the application.
Upon completion of the building, the builder must notify the Shire within 7 days of completion by lodging a Form BA7.
If the person/company nominated as the builder on the permit ceases or fails to compete the works, they must notify the Shire within 7 days of the cessation of works by submitting a Form BA8.
