The stormwater point of discharge is a point specified by the Shire where stormwater from a property must be discharged.  The Building Regulations requires that stormwater collected off all new buildings is to be discharged to the approved stormwater point of discharge.  

In order to get a building permit, your building surveyor will require a report from the Shire stating the stormwater point of discharge.

Building Records

You can obtain a copy of your house plans or building permit documents from Council when planning alterations or extensions, or selling your property.

Our building permit records date back approximately 15 to 30 years depending on the location of the property; therefore not all house plans are available.

If you are not the rated owner of the property (legal owner), a signed letter of consent is required from the rated owner of the property when you apply for a building plan/record.
