Wood heater installation

Homeowners are required by law to obtain permission from us before installing a wood burning heater. 

From July 1 2021, all Development Applications, Construction Certificates, Complying Development Certificates, Local Activity applications (Section 68) and all other relevant planning and building applications must be submitted through the NSW Planning Portal.

All applications that would have previously been submitted to Council's Planning and Building Department will only be accepted via the ePlanning Portal.

Anyone wishing to lodge an application will need to establish their own account on the NSW Planning Portal. Once registered you can gain access to a digital dashboard which helps you to manage your application through the online system.

If you are wanting to lodge an application prior to July 1 2021, please contact us on 1300 087 004
