Extend the Time on a Planning Permit

Need a little longer to start or complete your development? You may submit a request to Council to extend the expiry date on your planning permit.

The application for an extension of time on a planning permit must be made in writing:

  • Before the permit expires, or
  • Within 6 months after the permit expires, or
  • Within 12 months after the permit expires, if the development lawfully commenced before the expiry date and you wish to extend the time to complete the development.

If you submit your request outside these times, Council and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) cannot extend the permit. A new application for a planning permit must be submitted.

How to apply for an Extension of Time

What you need

  • The length of time you require.
  • An explanation of the reasons why you need the extra time.
  • Evidence that the development lawfully commenced before the expiry date (if the development has started and the request is made within 12 months of the expiry date).
