Covid-19 Information and Updates

As of 30th March, Council offices are closed to the general public. Although we are no longer doing face to face we can still assist you on phone, email, by post or if you drop a letter in our new post box outside the Queenstown office.

Events around Covid-19 are unfolding rapidly. Each day we will provide updates on where to access best government information around the pandemic, effects on Council services and community and information on economic support and operating local businesses. Please stay safe, practice social distancing and good hygiene.

Building Services

Council does not provide Building Surveying Services and no longer assess applications to ensure compliance with the Building Code of Australia. 

Any person wishing to undertake building works is required to lodge their application with a private building surveyor prior to lodging the application with Council for approval. 

A  Certificate of Likely Compliance will be issued with approved plans.  Council will require the Certificate of Likely Compliance and approved plans to be lodged with completed application forms so a building permit can be issued. 

Planning and Plumbing approvals are still undertaken primarily by Council and these processes still need to be undertaken prior to a building permit being issued should approval be required.
