Council Planning & Approvals

Renovating is one of the biggest and most rewarding tasks you can undertake in your home ownership journey.

That’s why your choice of builder is so important. Choosing a builder that understands what’s involved when it comes to council planning and approvals can be the difference between a dream or disaster renovation.

At Summit Renovations, our designers are experienced to have full knowledge of Town Planning Codes and Policies to ensure that any designs recommended to you comply.

Although we look after this process on your behalf, we understand that as the homeowner you may have some questions when it come to the approvals process.

Your questions answered

Senior Town Planner for Summit Renovations, Hamish Gleeson answers the top three questions we receive when it comes to Council Planning & Approvals.

  • When do I need planning and council approval for my renovation?
  • Do you have any ‘tips and tricks’ to help make the council approval process seamless?
  • What can speed up or slow down the council approval process?
