  • Housing and residential work
  • Commercial and industrial work
  • Garages, carports and sheds
  • Plumbing and drainage
  • Solar water heaters and water cylinders
  • Jetties
  • Relocated buildings

There is a separate application available online for solid fuel heaters and log fires (residential only).

Alternatively, you can download and complete our PDF applications. Do not complete both the online form and a downloadable PDF form for the same application.

To use this service, we do require that you create a login. This is because a login gives you additional usability, such as the ability to save partially completed applications and return to them later.
