Planning Services are responsible for the administration of the Knox Planning Scheme, which includes the consideration of applications for planning permits and ensuring compliance with planning permits and controls.

The Knox Planning Scheme requires a planning permit to be obtained for many land uses and developments including more than one house on a site (multi-dwellings or units), industrial and commercial development, subdivision of land or buildings, and in some instances of tree removal and other matters.

Applications for planning permits are assessed against the controls, policies and guidelines set out in the Knox Planning Scheme and the relevant State Government legislation. A fee is required for most planning permit applications.

Planning Services can provide advice on the Knox Planning Scheme and planning controls. If you are considering a development or change of use within the City of Knox, please contact Planning Services to check if a planning permit is required.
