Burke Shire Council

Planning & Development Planning & Development

The focus for our community and land use planning is sensible sustainable development that retains the desirable characteristics of our local lifestyle, protects the visual amenity and provides balanced growth.

Council has a responsibility to ensure appropriate planning is undertaken and adhered to for fair and equitable development. This involves ensuring construction or alterations of buildings and structures (including signs) meet building and town planning requirements.

Property owners have an obligation to follow the procedures and processes needed to ensure safe development. Before undertaking any construction or alterations on your property, you will need to understand your responsibilities. All development applications must be completed using approved forms.

Please check your requirements with Council staff before undertaking any works.
