What is the difference between a Planning Permit and Building Permit?

Planning Permits and Building Permits are two seperate and distinct approvals. Generally Planning Permits relate to the use and development of land, where as, Building Permits relate to the structural matters and compliance with the building regulations. Depending on the buildings and/or works, some proposals require both Planning and Building approval, some require only one.

Planning Permits can only be issued by Council, VCAT or the Minister for Planning, while Building Permits can be obtained from any registered Building Surveyor.
