Building inspections

It is in your interests to ensure all building works are inspected at the appropriate stages. Building inspections are mandatory and a certificate must be issued to finalise your permit.

Inspections can be arranged by telephoning Council’s Planning Office (03) 5355 0225 during office hours and providing the following details:

  • day of inspection (a minimum 24 hours’ notice is required)
  • site address
  • contact person's name and phone number

If you are building a new home or other building, the following inspections must occur:

  • footings – prior to the placement of any footing (ie the concrete pour), the strip footing, raft slab and/or pad footings need to be inspected
  • frame – inspection is required on the completion of the frame before any installation of the roof cladding
  • final inspection for Certificate of Occupancy Permit
