Change an approved permit

Do you want to change the preamble or approved conditions in your planning permit? Perhaps you want to make significant changes that may affect other properties. If so, you must submit a Section 72 Amendment to a planning permit.

Reasons for submitting an amendment include:

  • changing the permit preamble which describes what permit allows
  • changing the approved planning permit conditions
  • making significant changes to the approved endorsed plans which may affect the amenity of other properties
  • making significant changes to the approved endorsed plans, resulting in possible amenity impacts.

In this case, you must apply online for an amendment:
