Planning

Submitting planning applications

Planning applications can only be lodged online. You answer questions about yourself and the project, upload documents in PDF format and pay the application fees.

By talking to us early in the planning process, we can help with project design and permits. The best way to find out what permits you need is to submit an enquiry online or make an appointment to see a duty planner at the Hobart Council Centre, 16 Elizabeth Street, Hobart, by phoning 03 6238 2715.

For building enquiries, please contact a private building surveyor. For enquiries about building permits already lodged, please contact City of Hobart’s Permit Coordinator on 03 6238 2946.
