Permit condition plans

Before beginning development or use, you may need to submit plans or reports for approval to Knox City Council.

Plans that may need approval

Council approval may be needed for: 

  • changes to the plans you originally submitted with your application
  • landscaping plans
  • drainage plans
  • other plans or reports.

Make sure your records with us are up to date.

If you want to make other changes unrelated to the permit conditions, you can submit a request for an amendment. Fees will apply. 

Condition 1 plans and reports

Under Condition 1 of your planning permit, you may need to resubmit your plans with specific changes. You may also need to submit other plans, like a Sustainable Design Assessment or Waste Management Plan.

Read the conditions carefully and contact your planner with any questions.

Email Condition 1 plans and reports to KnoxBuilding&PlanningCounter@knox.vic.gov.au. Please make sure attachments are under 20MB in size.

The plans will be returned to you once they're approved.

Landscape plans

A qualified landscape architect or landscape designer familiar with Council's town planning processes must prepare your landscape plans.

They should be skilled in landscape design, horticulture, landscape documentation and construction practice.

Before preparing your landscape plans:

  • read the conditions and notes on your planning permit
  • check the development plans endorsed under Condition 1 of the planning permit.

Before submitting your plans, make sure they meet the landscape guidelines. The guidelines include a checklist in Section 7.

Email your landscape plans to landscape@knox.vic.gov.au. Please make sure attachments are under 20MB in size.

The plans will be returned to you once they're approved.

Drainage plans

Before preparing the drainage plans, carefully read your planning permit.

A qualified civil engineer must prepare your drainage plans using the civil engineering plans checklist. Submit this checklist with your drainage plans.

Also, check the development plans endorsed under Condition 1 of the planning permit.

Email your drainage plans to engineeringplans@knox.vic.gov.au. Please make sure attachments are under 20MB in size.

The plans will be returned to you once they're approved.

Turnaround times

Your plans will generally be reviewed within 30 days and amendments may be required.  Incomplete plans will take longer.
