Amend or extend your permit

Change your approved building plans

If you have obtained a building permit and need to alter your approved building plans, you can apply to amend your building permit.

You will need to provide three copies of the amended plans along with your application.

If your amended plans include the construction of new buildings in addition to what was included in the approved plans, you will need to apply for a new building permit.

To apply, complete an Amend a Building Permit Application Form MS Word(DOCX, 187KB) or PDF(PDF, 153KB).

Apply for an extension

Your building permit will include a start and a finish date which all building works must be completed by.

If you are unable to comply with these dates, you can apply for an extension so that the works can be completed and the relevant inspections can be carried out before an Occupancy Permit or Certificate of Final Inspection is issued.

If your permit expires and the building work is not complete, you will need to apply for a new building permit to complete the unfinished work.
