Planning Application Forms and Requests

All planning applications can be lodged through Council's Greenlight Portal. Choose one of the following types of applications or requests. See the Fact Sheets and Checklists page first to make sure you submit all the required information.

A fee is also required for all applications (except for some general enquiries), the Schedule of Fees (1 July 2018 - 30 June 2019)(PDF, 310KB) identifies the fees required for each application type. 

If you are using the Greenlight Portal for the first time, you must first complete a short registration process.

Use this link to apply for any of the following:  

  • Amended Permit Application
  • Extension of Time Request
  • Request to Endorse Plans
  • Secondary Consent Request

A Secondary Consent Request can be made where minor modifications to approved plans are proposed, subject to certain requirements. Contact one of Council's Planning Officers on 9932 1000 or townplanning@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au if you are unsure if your proposal is suitable for Secondary Consent. 

We are here to help. Click here to lodge a pre-application meeting request or general planning enquiry.

Requesting planning approval is different to a planning permit application, and applies only in certain circumstances. Contact one of Council's Planning Officers on 9932 1000 or townplanning@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au if you are unsure if your proposal requires a Plan Approval.
