The very first thing you should do is contact your local council to establish if there are any overlays (heritage or vegetation) affecting your land, or alternatively you can access this information here (simply type in your address and click search). The next screen will bring up your address, tick the box and click search again. On this screen you will see a number of reports, but we recommend you tick ‘basic property report’ and click next. This is a summary page of your parcel of land which includes your Planning Zone and any Planning Overlays affecting your block. Take the time to click on these reports to review, or contact your local council for further details.
