Building and Planning Services in the

Shire of Wongan-Ballidu

The building and planning services provided through local government assist in protecting the community from major risks to life and property and contribute to the sustainability of our built environment. While it is the State Government that sets building regulations, it is Local Government’s responsibility to administer them in accordance with the Building Code of Australia, relevant town planning requirements and building local laws. The importance of local government's role in ensuring safe building systems and sustainable outcomes cannot be overstated.  

Local government’s role in building control services includes:

  • Assessing the key building risks and issuing permits
  • Compliance
  • Providing advice on building matters and scenarios
  • Building Certification
  • Preparing feasibility reports
  • Establishing policies to guide building control services
  • Establishing and reviewing local laws that may impact on the building industry

An application must be lodged with the local government that has responsibility for the area in which the building is (or is intended to be) located.

The following Applications, Certificates and Notice templates are available for download on the Department of Commerce Website
