Building Or Renovating A Commercial/Retail Premises
Commercial and Retail development applications need to consider traffic and car parking implications. As the building size increases, the need for additional fire safety equipment also rises. Fire safety measures are put in place to protect human life first and the building second. Larger buildings need fire hose reels, evacuation plans, smoke control and so on. Council staff can provide you with an indication of what type of fire safety measure will be required.
Applications are generally dealt with by the Council. Your development may also need to be publicly advertised.
The following information regarding the appropriate process is a starting point. You should discuss your proposal with Council staff to establish if additional information is required.
