Application for Pre-Planning Advice

If you intend to construct a building or carry out works on land affected by Design and Development Overlays, it is recommended that you contact us for pre-planning advice.

If the proposal requires a planning permit, it is possible for Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) to provide an assessment prior to a planning application being lodged at Council.

We strongly support this 'pre-approval' approach as it gives certainty to the applicant, MMRA and the Council. It would also exempt the need for a review by MMRA as part of the planning permit assessment and may result in a planning decision sooner.

To arrange a meeting, please fill in your details in the form below (Step One) and then email us supporting materials (Step Two). We will provide a response within 14 days of receiving both sets of information.
