Replacement building after a bushfire

Under certain circumstances, applications for a replacement building may be approved within 10 days. The process can take longer if the building is in an area identified as:

  • Hazards (bushfire - high risk)
  • Hazards (bushfire - medium risk)
  • Historic area
  • Local heritage place
  • State heritage area
  • State heritage place.
