Building & Plumbing

If you are:

  • Building a house, garage or other structure
  • Otherwise changing or adding to your property

You may need to apply for a Permit.

Builders are required to have an accreditation number (CC Number). Those builders who do not have an accreditation number may provide their temporary receipt number issued by the relevant accreditation body.

If you are wanting to be an owner builder you must complete the Owner Builder Course and White Card Course online before applying for your building permit. Council is to receive a copy of your qualification certificates along with your application (form 40) which you will find below in the building and plumbing forms. If you google Owner Builder Course Tasmania you will be presented with various sites where you can complete the course.
