When you receive a planning permit you will also get endorsed plans that show what is to be built and how the land can be used. This means the use or the buildings and works must be undertaken as shown on the endorsed plans.
If you need to make changes to a planning permit you will probably need to apply to Council to amend the planning permit. Council can sometimes assess minor changes to the plans without the need to apply for a new permit. Find out more about changing a permit.
