Planning approval and building approval are two separate processes. Often a particular use or development of land may require approvals under both processes. Separate applications are required.

Whats the difference?

The planning approval process involves assessment of a proposal to use or develop land against the rules in a planning scheme. The planning process is mainly concerned with the impacts of a proposed use or development upon neighbouring land.
