Planning Advice

Planning enquiries

General advice over the phone

The City of Greater Dandenong offers general over the phone advice to help you work out if you need a planning permit. This advice is 'non-binding'. The service also looks at what information you will need to support a permit application.

You need a property address for all enquiries as planning scheme information is site-specific.

For general advice over the phone, call the Planning Enquiries Service on 8571 1000. This service is free.

Written response

For a written response, visit the Request written planning advice or information page to find out how to apply. A fee applies for this service. 

Pre-application advice

Use Council’s Planning pre-application discussion service to discuss your proposal before submitting a planning permit application. A fee applies for this service.
