    Local permits

    A Building Permit from the ABC and a PERCOW from Melbourne Airport do not mean that you have all the necessary approvals to commence work. Some work activities require additional permits. Failure to have these Local Permits may result in your works being suspended and/or a failure to achieve completion for your works. Please carefully consider the local permit guidelines below to determine if they are applicable to your works.
