Private Building Surveyors - online lodgement

Please note: if you would like to apply for a new Building Permit through Nillumbik Building Surveyors, please refer to our Building Permits page. The following information is intended for Private Building Surveyors who wish to lodge a permit to Council.

The Building Regulations requires private building surveyors to lodge a Section 30 Building Permit with the relevant Council within seven days of issuing the permit.

All documentation and plans can now be lodged online through Nillumbik's ePathway service.

Documentation must be uploaded in PDF format and the total attachment cannot exceed 50Mb.

The lodgement fee will be processed via SecurePay.

At the conclusion of lodgement, a reference number will be issued. Please use this reference number when submitting further information and finalisation of permits via email.

Please note that this lodgement system is only to be used for new Building Permits and all stages. Any further information, amended documents and certificate of final/occupancy permits should be lodged via email to once the initial Section 30 has been lodged.
