Building Permits and Certification of Design Compliance

The City of Bunbury's role as a permit authority is to assist its community and industry with complying with legislative requirements under the Building Act 2011, Building Regulations 2012 and relevant Local Laws for all buildings constructed within the local government boundaries.
Unless works are exempt under the Building Regulations 2012, a building permit is required prior to starting the construction of most structures located in the city (including pools, patios, sheds, dwellings and commercial buildings).
Please visit the WA Building Commission website to access all application forms and guides. These forms are universal and will be accepted by all WA Local Government areas. You can also access the New Building Approvals System guide below.

You can also lodge your application through the City of Bunbury E-Services
