From 4 July our FOGO program allows you to place food waste in the garden waste bin for collection.
When your development is complete, we need to do a final inspection to ensure you have complied with your permit conditions and endorsed plans.
This inspection will look at a range of items, including:
It is important to keep in mind that the final inspection is not a building, engineering or civil works inspection.
A final inspection happens only after all works, including landscaping, service installations, drainage and paving work are complete.
If you have made any changes that are not shown on your endorsed plans, then you need to apply for approval for those changes before we inspect your site.
If your changes are not approved, you will need to do additional works to bring your development into compliance with your original plans.
Amend your planning permit
Before we come out to inspect your property, you must fill out the inspection checklist and declaration.
You will need your development permit application number.

A qualified engineer must inspect the drainage and paving for your development and sign off on the work.
The engineer must be satisfied that your design plans have been achieved, including:
Complete the compliance of drainage and paving form(PDF, 97KB)
Once the checklist is completed and the engineer has filled out the drainage compliance form, send them to us at email@example.com
We will arrange an inspection within 14 days or at a mutually convenient time.
A member of our planning team will visit your property to assess your completed works, noting all points on the checklist.
There is no fee for a final inspection. Should we need to do additional inspections, there is a $167.00 fee charged for each.
Any non-compliances or discrepancies with your plans will be reviewed, and a formal notification of any areas of concern will be provided to you.
You will be required to address the discrepancies to meet our approval and to avoid possible enforcement taken against the developer.
We will contact you by email to let you know that you are in compliance, and that the inspection is complete.
