Construction and demolition management plans

A construction management plan is required as part of the approval process for a building permit and a demolition management plan is required as part of the approval process for a demolition permit. The construction management or demolition management plan is to be submitted to the City of Perth Development Approvals Unit before applying for the building or demolition permit.

If the construction management or demolition management plan cannot be submitted before the application for the building or demolition permit, the permit will not be able to be issued until the plans have been approved by the City.

There are separate pro-forma plans for construction and demolition management plans for commercial properties and single residential properties which can be found below.

Hoarding, gantry and scaffold structures

A hoarding, gantry or scaffold structure requires an application to be submitted to the City of Perth Development Approvals Unit for a permit approval. A separate obstruction permit is required from the City of Perth Health and Activity Approvals Unit when the road, footpath or verge is obstructed during assembly or dismantling of the structure.


Work bonds

A condition of permit approval for the structure is subject to the applicant providing a works bond for making good any damage that may be caused by your works to the City’s infrastructure. If any damage has been caused, then it must be rectified in accordance with the City’s design and construction notes.

The work bond will not be refunded until the City has received your completed refund request form and the area inspected by the City confirming no damages. To request a refund for your works bond, please click here and complete the request.

Work zones

A work zone established by the City is provided to service a construction site to allow for the loading and unloading material. A work zone is not to be used as parking by any individual or for storage of materials, bins or any other item.

Crossovers

A construction site often requires a temporary crossover to allow access during the works. On completion of construction works, a permanent crossover to accommodate the new building is often required.
