Without regulations and controls, building and development would be unplanned, unguided, and potentially unsafe and unsatisfactory. Council takes on the responsibility of ensuring that all development in the City goes through a rigorous and careful planning procedure and is in-line with a range of regulations and requirements, both at Federal and State Government levels and at the local level.
Much building and development which is undertaken in the City, especially that which is likely to affect the amenity of the City or those who live here, can only be carried out once a permit has been granted. The permit application process ensures that any development in Glen Eira is safe, meets statutory requirements, and contributes to the overall character of the area in which it occurs in a positive way, without detriment to those who live nearby.
Council employs a range of professionals who support, inform and educate, inspect and assess all building and development, prior to and during the construction process. This website provides information on a range of building and planning issues, from permit applications, through town planning and design, to heritage and neighbourhood character.
