We continue to provide a full range of Planning, Engineering, Building and Inspection services to customers, from permit application to final inspection. We are also open to customers via our award-winning online portal – eServices – which provides a variety of functions available 24/7.

Our e-Services website allows citizens to submit commercial and residential development project permit applications online.
