How to request planning information about a property

If you are buying, renovating or building a property in Bayside you can request information about the land. Information available includes relevant planning zones and overlays, utilities, land titles and maps.

Where can I see what changes are allowed on my property?

You can search for your property on the Bayside Planning Scheme on the Planning Schemes Online website. This website shows the planning zones and overlays that govern how your land can be used and developed. You can also speak to us about your property.
